    Time to call in the experts - the action may be a 1907 MKII**, but I didn't think the multi-thread locking lugs were incorporated until the 1910 MK III action.

    It looks as though the old girls was handled roughly, but still has beautiful lines.

    It's a " Model 1907 Scotch Deer Stalker pattern" rifle, which used the 1905-1910 action also used for the 1905-1910 .280 Ross single shot match rifle.

    It's basically a MkII** target rifle action with the addition of interupted lugs.

    They have 3 segments so they are not the same as a 1910 bolt.

    The action is milled for the interrupted lugs so it is not simply a 1905 action.

    A Britishicon made Ross. That must be rare indeed.

    So rare as to be non-existent. Other than a few early model sporters that were made under contract in Hartford, Conn prior to the construction of the Quebec factory, all Ross rifles were made here in Canadaicon. British proof marks on a rifle simply denote it has been tested and approved for sale in Britain. I have had P14/M1917 sporters that bore British proofs, even though the rifles they were built on were all manufactured originally in the U.S.

    There were a very small number of late Mk.II** rifles manufactured using an interrupted-thread, multi-lug bolt head, different but similar to that later standardized on the Mk.III. I've only seen them in pictures. They are among the rarest of the Ross variants. Those handful that have been posted online have all been factory sporters.
