  • Description: Serial #E90979, .303 British, 25” barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is a 1917 dated, BSA-made rifle that retains 85-90% of the original blue finish with crisp Canadian “C/(Broad Arrow)” markings on the receiver ring (on top and on the left side), and on the underside of the wrist. The matching numbered bolt has some mild freckling along the otherwise gray body, and there is freckling on the handle and bolt knob. Additionally, there is a small import mark on the right side of the receiver. The bands and matching numbered nosecap match the condition of the receiver, and exhibits some silvering along the high edges and projections. The buttstock and forend have scattered small handling marks and minor blemishes under an armory reapplied varnish, and the stock disk is missing. The rifle comes with a single correct magazine, and rates fine condition overall. This is a nice example of a hard to find Canadian marked SMLE. FFL or C&R
