  • Description: Serial #56372J, .303 British, 25" barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is a 1946-dated rifle that has matching numbers on the bolt, as well as on the blocky nosecap. The metal has 90-95% of the armory-applied Suncorite finish remaining which has flaked on the exposed edges, and on the handle and bearing surfaces of the bolt. Additionally, there is some mild pinprick pitting scattered about and the brass buttplate has a dark yellow-ochre patina. The forend and handguards are in fine shape with light surface marring and handling blemishes while the copper wire wraps are intact and still relatively bright. The wood has scattered bruises and blemishes, heaviest around the receiver, and a repair at the heel of the butt. A single magazine and an original grenade cup attachment are also included. This is a great looking Ishapore grenade rifle and is in fine-near excellent condition overall. FFL or C&R
