    WW2 1942, 'Lend Lease' Southern Rhodesia Government (SRG) Service Marked Savage .303 Calibre S.M.L.E. No.4 MK I* Rifle And Sling. D 1264

    This is a great condition, WW2 'Lend Lease' Savage, .303 calibre S.M.L.E. No.4 MK I* rifle. These rifles were manufactured under the terms of the 'lend-lease' agreement during WW2. The MK I designation was changed to MK I* in 1942 after modifications to the bolt housing. ( See page 342 of The British Service Lee by Skennerton). The woodwork and metal work of this weapon are in excellent near mint condition & is all original. It strips, cocks and dry fires perfectly. The rifle is complete with an original webbing sling and it is nicely stamped 'No 4 MK I* on the left side of the frame. The left side of the weapon's strap is stamped with serial number together with 'S' (Savage, Manufacturer) & 1942 date. The left of the frame is stamped ‘No.4 MK1*’. The top of the breech is stamped ‘U.S. Property’. The stock is impressed ‘SRG’ which indicates that this weapon saw service with the South Rhodesia Government together with number ‘647’ which is either an Armoury weapon number or Military Unit number ( when Northern Rhodesia became independent from Britain and changed its name to Zambia the Southern Rhodesian Colonial Government felt that in the absence of a "Northern" Rhodesia, the continued use of "Southern" was superfluous. It passed legislation to become simply Rhodesia. During WW2 Southern Rhodesian Military Units participated on the side of the United Kingdom. Southern Rhodesian forces were involved in the East African and Burma Campaigns. Rhodesia became Zimbabwe in 1979). Price for this quality nicely marked example includes deactivation certificate and UK delivery. D 1264
