    Congrats on the purchase. They are a bit hard to come by. The break at the wrist is quite common as, apparently, many were deliberately broken at that point to render them 'deactivated'. Any markings on the stock? That would help determine if a military/cadet of commercial purchase. Lots of fun to shoot. As for production numbers, I'm away from my sources, so hopefully someone else can help with that.

    These came in three main flavours.
    1 Military purchase ones for cadet use, which have the Ross Rifle company stamp and a date on the right buttstock, as well as usually a massive pile of crossed out issue stamps to various Cadet Corps
    2 Commercial sale/civilian sale, which don't have those marks on the stock, but have a serial number on the left side of the barrel just front of the receiver. Usually also should have the Ross proof stamp on the underside of the wrist.
    3 Post annexation, which were put together out of parts after the Canadianicon government stole (ahem, appropriated) the factory. A large number of military and small bore rifles were assembled in that way. Identifiable by being neither one nor two, usually no marks at all, although sometimes the stock will have the proof on the wrist but no number stamped on the barrel.

    your rifle has had the stock broken and repaired, the bolt handle replaced and the screw holding in the rearsight also replaced with one which is a bit too big. Many of the original bolt handles are bent or broken because people were too dense to realize that once you push the bolt forward to lock, it either has to be unlocked by firing it, or by pushing forward the little lever at the front of the trigger guard. Folks instead would reef on the bolt handle and bend it back or break it. Does yours cycle ok? How is the bore? They are simple, elegant little rifles. If you haven't taken it apart, unscrew the screw holding on the front barrel band and slide the band forward a bit, then unscrew the middle swivel and the barrel and action will lift out of the stock. If you then push in on the little lever on the left hand side of the rear of receiver/rearsight assembly, you can unscrew that counterclockwise until it comes off. You can then take out the bolt and clean the barrel.

    I have several of them, many with minor issues, and should really combine them into a few excellent ones and a few parts donors.

    Enjoy!
