Matching Numbers in Very Good Condition


This is the standard MkIII* .303 SMLE rifle manufactured by Lithgow in Australia
The action, barrel, bolt, rear sight fore-end & nose cap have matching serial numbers.

The wood work is a Australian Coachwood, and has a hidden crack which and may need replacing in the furure.

The original Lithgow markings are still clearly visisble on the butt

All metalwork retains most of its original finish, the barrel & action have the correct grey/green parkerised finish


The good bore is in excellent condition.

Unusually for Lithgown Rifles it is Fitted with the rarer Long Butt which is 1/2" Longer than standard

This rifle is priced at £375 because of a crack in the fore-end which can be seen in the image below, and may need replacement in the future

Would be ideal for Re-Enactment & Blank Firing
