Description: •Serial no. 2T9282 55 cal., 36" round bbl., parkerized finish, walnut grips. •This is a very fine all original registered Canadian version of the British MKI antitank rifle, commonly called a "boys" rifle after its original designer Captain Boys. These were designed in the 1935/36 time frame by Ccaptain Boys in response to the British Ministry's request for a lightweight man-portal rifle capable of defeating the early designed tank armor. • It was accepted and introduced into the British Army in 1937 but this concept was overtaken by advancements in tank armor making it somewhat ineffective. It was used successfully by the Finnish Army in 1940 against the early Russian tanks and again in the Far East against the light armored Japanese tanks, gun emplacements and pillboxes. •In the post-Korean War era many of these rifles were rebarreled to the .50BMG for long range sniper use. •This rifle is all original and unaltered. It has matching numbers on the receiver, bolt and rear section of the barrel and is still chambered in the original .55 cal boys rifle round. •The left front side of the receiver is marked "U.S. PROPERTY/R.B./MK I/ INGLIS/1943". •These rifles used the same top loading box magazine with the sights off-set to the left, very similar to the Bren gun. •It is complete with one original 1937 dated British Anti-Tank rifle training pamphlet, that details its dimensions, characteristics, field stripping, cleaning, loading, firing, and correct aim techniques, This rifle is complete with the original front mounted bipod, one original magazine and the original muzzle break. The magazine is an original WWII British issue, howerever it has a fnish boxed "SA" on the backside. •Condition: Very fine with 90% of the original wartime finish which has darkened from age, showing only minor edge and high spot wear overall. The bolt body retains its original factory bright finish and the various parts all show their original British proofmarks. •The cheekpiece, front and rear pistol grips still show their original wartime finish, albeit with some handling marks and light pressure dents •This is a really nice all original example of a desirable WWII British/ Canadian Manufactured, U.S. Army issue Boys Anti-Tank rifle. •NOTE: This item is currently registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, as a National Firearms Act (NFA) weapon, which has been classified as a Curos or Relic as defined in 27 CFR, 478.11. These weapons are still subject to the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
