    2. Description
      With many thanks to claven2, we were able to locate from an estate sale, a very rare piece of Canadian history with an ""all correct" and in superb condition, "all matching" 1915 Ross MKIII sniper rifle serial #223 complete with its matching Warner and Swasey scope No. 18, 1913 patent. The stock is also stamped "SCOPE NO 18" and the scope base on the rifle is also stamped "18". The original tooled leather case for the scope is C-Broad Arrowed marked and stamped with both the scope serial number (18) and the rifle number (223).

      This sniper rifle is from the first 250 batch ordered by the Canadian Government and being "SCOPE NO 18", it would have been very early in the production run of these rare rifles, with not very many surviving all these years.

      We've taken a few temporary pics, however, in the next month or so, we'll create a highly detailed and more complete photo montage showing all the markings etc., for inclusion within the Canada section of the main Knowledge Library.

      EAL303 This rifle is the prize of this forum to me. It represents true Canadian military might in the early days. We may not be big, but what we put out is perfection.(AVRO)Had not seen this until today. That is a tough looking bunch of lads. I am sure compared to all the confirmed stuff these days they surpassed all and never had a movie made about them. 04-15-2013
