    What MkIII is this on GB?

    No stock stamps and that rear sight? Looks different than others I've seen listed at auction. Thanks!

    Rifle, Ross Mk IIIB

    Britishicon contract purchased the Ross Mk III with a simplified rear sight known as the "War Office Pattern" sight (and front sight similar to P14).

    The stock was also supposedly strengthened at the wrist.
    66,590 produced.

    They should have all of the production updates (heavier stock, larger bolt stop, proper bolt heat treatment) as they were the last Ross rifles manufactured.

    "L C" stamped means enlarged chamber for the poor quality war time ammo.

    Yes, those were the last Rosses produced. Most as best I can tell went to the Middle East after service with the Britishicon. Pretty much all of the ones I have seen have a large serial number stamped on the receiver (as does this one) and usually have a decent number of stock markings often painted and often in something like Farsi. There is something about this one which is off--it may be a trick of the photographs but I am wondering if that barrel is too short.
    It seems there is less of it sticking out of the front of the stock than there should usually be; could be my imagination.
