This, the Transitional Stock Model 3rd series was different to preceding and subsequent standards in that the rounded stock had the same profile as previous rifles, but the heat impressed chequering had the letters BSA embossed was absent from either side of the stock. This series still utilised the short rear trigger guard tang and has a front blade and rear adjustable sight. The serial No-S29530 which dates the rifle between the years 1929 & 1930 is stamped above the trigger on the left hand side. The beautiful wooden stock and grooved butt is in excellent condition with only the usual age related marks on show. The right hand side of the stock is crisply impressed 'Lincoln Jeffries 121 Steelhouse Lane Birmingham’ along with the Lincoln Jeffries Trademark. The metalwork is in good order, retaining the majority of its colour, again with minor age related marks, and the push button for the release catch on the under leaver works as it should. The rifle measures 45 ½ cm from the butt to the end of the barrel. See page 118 of John Milewski ‘The Book of the BSA Air Rifle 1905-1939’ for reference. The price includes UK delivery. 21070.
