Left side reciever: No4 MK1/2 (F) FTR...factory through recondition
below that stuff: /53 BU193** date of remanufacture, and serial number?
Has an importers mark on the barrel, very small and hard to spot:
CAI STP. A. VT. 303B UK importer from Vermont I think.
Upper barrel band marked D60
Metal wrist band marked 1944
Barrel needs a bore snake, its got some dust, but still VERY shiney, and sharp lands.
Wood is almost too good to be true. I thought it was sanded and refinished, but really does look original. Very few minor handling marks, and small stamps still visable so I would guess not sanded/cleaned. If it was, it was done by a real pro as the wood is still "proud" around the metal. I"m not a 303 guy, but this rifle spoke to me. I really have no idea of the value, and since this guy is like a brother, want the transaction to be fair.
