    The stamps on the left side of the receiver are all that's immediately visible. Nothing visible on the stock.

    Nice find. Barrel looks to be full length, only the wood cut back. How is the bore?

    If you carefully remove the rear hand-guard, the year of manufacture and serial number should be found there.

    This does not apply to this model. If you assemble the bolt incorrectly on this (1903 - MK I) or the 1905, MK II, you will not be able to fit it back into the rifle.

    The rivet found on some M-10 and MK III bolts still allows you to strip it. The rivet will prevent you from assembling the bolt incorrectly.

    Thanks. It turned up in a friend's shop as part of a collection.

    The barrel measures 28" inches. Minor pitting, dark in the grooves, fairly strong and bright lands, chamber clean and free of pits, crown in worn condition. It's yet to be slugged or gauged.

    Here's what's stamped under the hand guard:

    28 in. is right for a full length barrel.

    G 879 is the serial No., manufactured in 1905.

    You might be a bit surprised, the bores on Mk I and early Mk IIs are usually quite tight.

    Most of these posts are correct; reassembly of this bolt incorrectly will just mean you can't get it back into the rifle. Reassembling a Mk III bolt incorrectly will allow you to put it back in the rifle but it won't lock and will fly out at you when you fire the rifle. And your mainspring is in three pieces. This example of yours is an early one, but has been sporterized. Is there anything stamped into the wood of the right hand side of the stock? Ross factory crest in a roundel, date or serial number?

    I'd like to slug it, but I don't have a suitable dowel handy at the moment.

    The firing pin spring is split in two, but I think there should be a two-piece spring arrangement with the smallest spring fitting inside the cocking piece. I could well be mistaken.

    No, sadly it's blank. Nothing at all. It may have been sanded away and refinished when the stock was cut back.
