Rifle for Mongo

A fellow Arrser had this sent to me from another RFD until his variation arrives, tempted? Perhaps yes as I used to own an example not quite as nice as this;

No repairs to stock evident and the metal work is in reasonable condition;

Sadly the stock cartouches or unit stamps are really rather faded, whether this is from wear or from sanding and refinishing I cant tell as yet. the bore looks pretty good and its been cleaned thoroughly by the other dealer C&G Firearms Ltd

A prompt delivery exactly when stated, very impressed as should Tom be when he gets his mitts on it! My Great Grandfather went to war in 1915 with one of these, strange to think that this could even have been the rifle!;
