Good example of a British SMLE dated 1918 with a SN 9431. Medal parts have applied wartime arsenal blue finish, with typical wartime wear. The hard wood is good and shows typical dings, and abrasions! A very rugged bolt action, with a 25" barrel and a good bore with sharp rifling, and fine pits down in the grooves , so common with military rifles from WWI that used corrosive ammo! Top of the barrel has stamped a proof in a circle with: GENDARMERIE, and can't read the remainder. French Police use? Due to the high volume of emails, I can’t keep up with over 200 a day, please be patient, when corresponding thanks . We don’t have a web site .I prefer money orders or a check. Item ships when funds come in. If you can only pay with a card let me know. I’m sorry I don’t list my phone number, did that for 30 days, never again.. I can’t talk on the phone all day…who will ship the guns? I’m just one person, and it’s very busy here! I do a brisk volume! I hope you like my wide selection of unusual guns, knives and gun parts. Shipping price determined by zip code. I try to keep the prices affordable, which means I make less money than most dealers. You won’t get altitude sickness with my prices! I consistently have the best selection of older guns If you BUY IT NOW you must still contact us for details buy it now doesn't end the sale, it just sends an email telling us you want to buy this gun. A phone call won’t secure a sale! Not home many times, the first buyer by email buys the gun !This web site does not close down a sale when you do a BUY IT NOW like Ebay! I can get six buy it nows in an hour, first buyer to email gets the guns, others are in second place! Best to send another email . Sometimes not home to get calls. Some guns are required shipment to a gun dealer near you for a transfer to you when it arrives. With the widest selection of older guns at great prices, We don’t have a store, and sell on the internet only.
