    If only that combo could talk. What a story it could tell.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Hi Marty,

    Rifle is a mkIII, and the bayonet has 1907 on it, real mint condition the best I've seen any way.

    At a guess minimum of $150 for the bayonet and $500 for the SMLE if all serial numbers matching.

    Hi guys

    I bought my BSA 1918 target rifle exactly one year ago. It is the same as pinkmists rifle, but has a australian central number 4 sight, BSA heavy target barrel (so the stamping says) and a whole piece of wood from different model 303 covering where the rear sight used to be. Looks like it was a NRA factory order that never got much use. It came with a 1907 bayo (refurb in 1916).

    The great thing about these rifles is you can always sell them for more than you paid! I think I paid a good price for it at the time, I reckon it has gone up in saleable value at least 15% since last year.

    Pinkmist will you sell your bayo frog separate please?
