This one on a standard length slant box action, chambered in .303 British and with the Fraser patent trigger. It needs a little TLC but will remain largely original when finished. The stock needs to be rubbed out, a new Silvers pad fit and it may get some slight damage to the rear sight and it's base repaired. A really interesting rifle and the bore remains very good.

Wow that is nice and you must be pleased. If you can, can you share a picture of the left side of the receiver.
In addition when you get the metal out of the wood I would love to see the bare action metal and slant box details.
Congrats!!

Very nice rifle Steve! With your talent, I hope you'll post photos after applying your time and talent to that stock. The blueing looks like it's very good too.

Nice, nice rifle!

I have been working on taking photos with my new camera and thought I would update this thread. Damage to rear sight and its base cleaned up, Fore end hanger re-attached, rust blue blended with existing finish. New recoil pad, a clean and oil which was desperately needed, a few small stock repairs and the original linseed oil finish was found under the oxidized black oil on top. Not a restoration, just a well deserved deep cleaning.

Wonder what the 2 on the barrel means, maybe there
was another barrel set?


I learn something every day, and a lot of times it's that what I learned the day before was wrong

Possible but my thought was a matched pair of rifles.
