Hi John,

    I acquired a Model 1910 last month. It appears to be a standard issue ser.# 8842 (1912). Forend had a hairline crack and the buttstock had a crack at the upper wrist at the tang. The toe had been broken off through the screw hole and crudely glued. I did a little cosmetic repairs to the three cracks and the are now acceptable to me. Apparently the rifle has been to Britain as it has British proofs on the barrel and bolt. The rear sight blade is a shallow "V". I managed to get some 200gr. cartridges but have yet to fire it. Let me know if you want pictures.

Thanks Charlie!  Your gun is in the database as number 138 and is only the third rifle with definite British proofs.  Could you please tell me what dates are stamped on the barrel and on the upper tang plus if the front and rear sights have been replaced to your knowledge or if there is any manufacturer's name on them.  I would like an overall photo (either side) and a photo of the British proofs for the record.  Also, a range report once you fire your rifle.  
Best, John

P.S.  If you want to contact me directly my email is lindly1907@gmail.com

Hi John,

 Here are pix I just took. The front sight is a Lyman (bead is broken off). Not sure of the rear but you can see the patent date on the elevator. I have no idea if these are original. I have more pix but they are just to show the finish (somewhat freckled on the receiver) and the repaired cracks. I have not gone any further than to remove the forend. I don't want to get into the bolt and springs if I don't have to.

Charlie,

Thank you for the photos.  Looks like a fine example.  And you are correct, you do not want to take it apart anymore than you already have.

Best, John

Thanks Michael!  I don't think that is a real deluxe/fancy model.  The stock looks like a replacement.
