    Lithgow High and Low Sniper Rifles

    Sorry, I couldn't resist ... since Australiaicon had to dispense four Lithgow sniper rifles which I bought there and was just successful in bringing them over to Europe, I had to put them aside of the single rifle I already had to make a group picture of all of them since you hardly ever see that many in one place (I'd however almost bet there are quite a few in here who can "outbid" me).

    Find attached pictures of all five rifles and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

    Very Nice Promo, I guess you'll be living on bread and water for sometime.

    Awesome collection of Australianicon snipers...

    what can you tell us about the differences between them?

    is one of the Low Mounts a conversion from Medium mounts? 1 each FTR / non-FTR?

    pre-war barrel(s) / war-time / post-war ?

    They were bought prior Christmas, just took some time to get them .. and according to my girlfriend it shouldn‘t hurt me too much to have a few days of only water and bread .

    I don‘t know much on them. All of these are listed by Skennertonicon. One is even twice listed, with storage date as well as FTR. And how would I know if a medium was converted to a low? Still hope to learn on those.
