Hey all I picked up 2 more lithgows the first one is a 1914 it’s been sporterised but has spent time in the Austrian police numbers matching and head spaces with a field gauge bore is very good nick barrel redone in 42 . The second is a 1915 that was Ftr in 1950 barrel done in 11 1950 all numbers matching nosecap bolt barrel and receiver it also does not close on a field gauge and barely shuts on a no go .projects for later on I was going o go shoot my other 1913 and 1914 yesterday but some torrential rain got in the way .
I now have a
1913 ser#160 rebarreled 1915
1914 ser#x5669 rebarreled 1932
1914 ser# 12063 rebarreled 1942
1915 ser#35302 rebarreled ftr 11/50
1916ser#43737rebarreled 1935
1921 sporterised to look like a Jungle Carbine good job done but missing Charger bridge

I was cleaning up the 1914 ready for new forestock and came across some weird marking can anyone decider them at all.first Mark is on the right receiver just behind the barrel it is either a T 117 or just 117 with a AL under it and the it is a J 52 I on the underside of the Barrel
