    All the parts from a particular rifle were put into a long cardboard box and onto a shelf until the rifle was ready for re-assembly. Just as Cinders and DRP say, the rifle number was penciled on the fore-end and handguards to ensure that these accuracy related parts went back on the same rifle. If it came in accurate, it would go out accurate!

    Not quite (T) related but thanks for confirming the pencil markings. My LB No4 has the serial pencilled on the handguards and fore-end channels, with that in mind I can assume it was stripped and saw some kind of extensive servicing or refinishing. Cheers, always been curious.

    Very common with target rifles.
