    BSA Martini Model 12 .22 With Canadian Marked Disc and Receiver

    Hello Folks,
    Correction...This is a Model 12 but has a 25" barrel, which is even shorter than the Model 8 barrel is supposed to be at 26".

    The stock disc and receiver are marked with only the C broad arrow mark.

    Does anyone know anything more about the Canadianicon provenance, or can point me in the right direction to more information?
    Thank you for any help.

    Dave

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Used to have many of them in schools in South Africa, until we had political correctness.

    Sorry for resurecting this so late - the Canadianicon Government placed 2 orders for BSA Martini rifles, the first in 1933 and the second in 1935. They were both ordered with shorter barrels than normal models.
