A US Ross MkII 3*


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I snagged this Ross MkII .303 rifle at a pawnshop on Christmas eve. This rifle was one of 20,000 purchased from Canada ,during WWI, for training purposes. The US markings were applied under the wrist. As a bonus the rifle came with a well worn Kerr "No Buckl" sling. Here are some pics.

 

Best regards,

Len

Len S,

 

That's quite a find. Congratulations!

 

I was going to recommend you also post in the Ross Rifle forum at Milsurps.com, but I see that you already did...
