Very Good Condition

This is the standard MkIII .303 SMLE rifle manufactured by BSA

This was part of a large order for rifles through the UK Goverment Crown Office for Bahrain

The action, bolt & rear sight have matching serial numbers.
The rear sights graduated from 200 the 2000 yards.

Magazine Cut-off

The wood work is a pleasing dark walnut, complete and in excellent condition with no splts. All metalwork retains most all of its original finish.
The butt has has the typical Bahrain rack numbered brass marking disc.

Very Good Bore.
The rifle has the original commercial BM (Birmingham Military) proof marks as there is debate if these are still valid, it was re-proofed.

Comes complete with a Bahrain issue Pattern 1907 Bayonet by Wilkinsons of Pall Mail
Miss-matched to the rifle but deserve to be together.

We originally sold this one a few years ago when the the Bahrain rifles first come on to the surplus market
