    New find MA Lithgow S.M.L.E MkIII* 1941

    Just pick up at a local gun show paid $325. with bayonet. My 308 Ishapore needed a friend.
    Any help with marking will be appreciated. Wood has no cracks or rework and barrel has good rifling. thanks

    The R over MA over 47 on the butt indicates a refurb in 1947. However, there's no way of knowing for sure if this is the rifle that was refurbed when the butt was stamped.

    Excellent buy and great gun. Congratulations and nice it has a good home.
    Why use a 50 pound bomb when a 500 pound bomb will do?
