    Here you go guys here is pics, the right side is my 1913 serial number 160,then in serial number sequence 3680 (India final service location)x5669 from Britishicon army back to Aussie army in ww2 , then 10265 from Aussie army over to Austrian gendarmerie after ww2. All pass field headspaceand are nice clean bores . The 13 was sporterised so I brought it back to original spec the the middle 2 are going to stay as is and the last one was sporterised and I am going to do Qld maple on that one and do volley sights on it .I also have a 15 /16 and 17 lithgows to go through and clean up my 17 does not close on a no go gauge the bolt gets 1/2 way before it gets tight .let me know what you all think
    Amazing, you might be the only one in the world with a 1913 and 3 x 1914s. Thanks for sharing

    If you are going for correctness on the resto, 13,14 & 15 Lithgows were stocked in Walnut, QM was not used till 1916 (maybe late 1915)

    The LoC of 1916 is in 2 parts, part 1 is about changes to the future production of the MkIII & lists those changes, part 2 introduces the MkIII* which is the same as a MkIII but without a cutoff or slot & as such the changes to the MkIII were also applied.
    I don't have the LOCs to hand and all my drawings and manufacturing / acceptance docs are in storage, but I will certainly look that info up for future reference.
