    Post Lithgow Rifles Survey

    For those members here that own Lithgowicon Rifles and are not members on Gunboards, I am currently conducting a survey on Year of Manufacture, Serial Numbers and Barrel Dates.



    I would much appreciate your input to those lists, either by adding to the thread over there or by posting your information on this thread.

    I will post the updated data sheets on this forum if I get a response, your assistance would be much appreciated.

    1926 Lithgowicon SMLE, serial No: B14257 (FTR 53 barrel dated 53) barrel was shot and was replaced few years ago. Not much original on the rifle apart from body, but stayed as it was since the FTR (minus the barrel)

    Note: After you click on images to ENLARGE them, you may find they automatically size smaller in your browser's window making them harder to view. The auto sizing is your browser's way of keeping images entirely within the screen size you have set. Move your mouse pointer to the bottom centre of the pic and you will see an options panel appear. There will be a small square box next to the large X, which will have a pointer arrow sticking out of it. If it's illuminated, it means the pic you're viewing can be enlarged, so click on this box and the pic will EXPAND and open to its normal size. You can then grab the pic with your mouse (hold down left mouse button) and move it around to look more closely at various parts of the photo.

    Easy enough to remember the stats of this one. But why the upside down looking "B"s?:


    B61941










    With the barrel date of....



    6 1941


    And bought in June (but no '41 tie in that I recall)
