    Rifle 1
    Q1. The Aussies are pretty miserable good parts were reused. W is not an OA or Lithgowicon serial number
    Q2 Slaz only used coachwood so plates are required.

    R depending on the style can also mean rust.
    MA R 5/46 means that is when the rifle was returned to stores after FTR/over haul.
    7/44 is the barrel manufacture date.

    Thank you for the info.
    No R's visible, and I would have been on the look for the unservicable marks. Rust was usually that Scripted R wasn't it?
    I'll have to take R1 to the range and see how accurate this W barrel is. Bore looks really nice, round check on the muzzle looks like she still has some life left in her and hasn't been shot out.
    R2 will have to wait until I can find or fabricate some plates.
    I found on the schematics on Numrich and BRP sites, the copper plates and screws, however neither have them; and they haven't responded to any inquires on it. Other than finding a trashed MkIII forend to salvage from, does anyone know of a source for them, or should they be pretty easy to fabricate?

    Since Century bought out Springfield Sporters you could try them. Seems like they are slowly rolling out parts (using Springfield Sporters photos).

    Hoosier Gun Works lists them, but no the screws. Will contact them and repost findings.
