    Here's my No4 SKN, Savage 1942.

    I restored this piece as it was in a very poor condition with many parts missing.

    This had a few other mods, over and above the SKN spec, the bolt face was cut back at the side and the firing pin hole welded up and made good.

    As they are constructed at the factory as sectioned demonstration pieces from specially sectioned components.

    I purchased both from one of the largest UKicon militaria and RFD's.

    The London Proof House also confirm this status.

    Neither have any reusable pressure baring components and are in essence 'deactivated' by design.

    Of course, legal definitions of what is, or isn't a firearm, change from country to country.

    From a UK perspective, if anyone is interested in this area of collecting, just make sure in advance that it's fully inert, with no pressure baring parts and most importantly, only buy one from a registered Firearms dealer, who has done all the checks first.

    On these examples, the chamber's have been milled away by 50%, so they won't support an inert round, the bolt face has also been sectioned away by 50%, to show the FP channel.
    Thanks, I was curious, as Pete says it depends who you ask.

    They aren't, of course, lethal barrelled weapons capable of discharging bullet, missile or shot, but as we are all aware, these days, legal definitions seems to be swept away in the hysteria of chasing convictions.

    Morning Jim,

    The top example is absolutely superb!

    They are such fascinating pieces, collectors either get it or they don't.

    I've used mine in talks in the past to demonstrate the working parts and they certainly help people to clearly understand, especially those of us who are more visual learners.

    I thought so too, didn't matter who made it. Looks great and would be nice to add it...big money though.

    While we are taking cutaways, here's another example from my collection.

    I've had this one for a few years, procured from another RFD.

    It's a BSA made L1A1, beautifully sectioned with the skill of a surgeon.

    Some very impressive machining work indeed!

    The bolt has been cut and the FP hole counter bored and welded up in same way as the Savage No4.

    Nice rifle, we had those for teaching recruits and I was one that took to task procuring them for instruction. They ended up being a nice to have and look at but when teaching mechanism we still used a partly stripped rifle and had the troops follow along. They only got a working knowledge of mechanism anyway, ended up with the instructors being the ones that got the clear picture.
    Regards, Jim
