  • Description: Serial #323022, .303 British, 26” barrel with a fine, bright bore that has some mild freckling within the grooves. The metal of this rifle has retained 50-60% of the original matte blue finish with the balance turned to a mellow plum-brown mixing with some fading at the muzzle, and brighter silvering along the exposed edges. The receiver has the “ERA” Eddystone maker's mark with correct, “E” marked parts, and an import mark on the underside of the barrel at the muzzle. The matching numbered bolt retains about the same amount of original blue with some gray fading and freckling on the handle, as well as further fading along the bearing surfaces. The non-matching numbered walnut stock and handguard have small handling marks scattered about the thick added varnish finish, and a repair at the heel of the butt. The volley sights and stock disk have been removed, and large circular holes were milled through the wood on either side of the breech area. Large “DP” (Drill Purpose) stamps are present on right side of the butt, and on the underside of the forend ahead of the magazine floorplate. The rifle is fitted with a khaki canvas web sling and is in about very good condition overall. FFL or C&R
