Important Announcement!

Hi Guys and Merry Xmas.
The forums theme was changed this morning to the Xmas theme, but as normal, I doubt it is showing up.
So a quick fix for this is to scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Change Theme button, located on the bottom left.
Click that and you will be presented with 2 options, simply select the Xmas theme, if that fails, select the 2.3 sense theme and then reselect the Xmas theme.

Serial number 9645 indicates a fourth batch BSA made Nov / Dec 1906, despatched between Nov 1906 and Nov1908.
Patent numbers are the patents applicable to the design.
14 1/4 stamped on stock is the length of pull from trigger to end of butt centre.
After that I'm struggling. I guess the arrow indicates military ownership, as it does not appear on all other rifles of the period. What the triangles and X13 means, I dunno. No doubt somebody who really knows his early BSA's will be along shortly.

I will follow this thread with interest.
atb, Shinny.

Hiya mate, I find it intresting that you think the Plinko is worth more than the 600 ?
I have had both, Now I only have this 600, ( With Bulk fill adapter from the States & my air fill ) .22 rifled barrel.
The Plinko is BB & consequently innacurate .

I would love to do a .25 conversion on the 600, But its worth too much , Now that would be a pistol ?
As regards repair, Only one man, Lawrie ,
Cheers Ged.
