Dear Sirs:  I would appreciate if anyone can help me with two questions regarding my 1915 production, .303 British chambered, 1895 Winchester rifle with the letters C.A. stamped on the left rear of the receiver.  How many commercial production rifles were chambered in .303 British and does anyone know what the letters C.A. might stand for.  Thank you.  Norwood.

You’ll probably need to post some pictures and a ser#, in order to get some answers

Henry:  I cannot seem to post photos successfully from my Macs.  Could you give me a number to text to, or an address to send to?  Norwood.

As a “Guest” on the WACA website, you do not have the requisite permission to directly upload pictures. What you can do instead, is to load your pictures on a photo hosting web service, and then post the URL to that website in your post here on the WACA website.

Does your .303 ’95 have any British commercial proof marks?

Aland:  Thank you for the post.  No, there appear to be no British commercial or military marks.  Given the production year, 1915, and the .303 caliber; I would think that the C.A. marking must have something to do with Canada.  I hope to find out.  Norwood.

It would be good to see some photos. Norwood, if you contact me by PM I will give you my email address and you can send me the photos and I will post them for you, if you wish.

 

I do not think there is any conection with Canada and the marking of CA, but could be wrong of course!

 

Regards
