    That's possible, though what I called a groove looks concave along the top edge of the barrel to me.

    Touché, but was their fate any better than AJP?

    It's not the location I refer to so much as the business entity itself and all that went with it.

    Yes, who can forget that P-H shambles, and the Tom Senior milling machines rusting away, along with a heritage and name recognition built over generations. :rolleyes:

    First step would be to determine if it actually is a Boer rifle - I referred to it as such without checking - I see no Boer markings and can't recall the exact details of the serial ranges, but the...

    Well that's interesting, so Zimbabwe sold off a bunch of old weaponry as South Africa has been doing recently? Z.A. can also be Zuid Afrika of course, but I'm not contesting your assertion.

    No fear, it wouldn't even pass inspection by a blind man as a L42. The only interesting aspect, other than the 1955 dated No.8 Case, is the "ZA" marking below the boltway so proudly outlined in...
