Description

DEACTIVATED INERT .55 Boys (14x99B) Mark 2 1939 Dated Practice Anti-Tank Rifle Round. Sn O 1321 - O 1321

This round was developed by a Captain H C Boys, a designer at the Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield resulting in the .55 Boys anti-tank rifle being adopted in 1937. Although the round was adequate against light tanks in the early part of the war, the Boys was ineffective against heavier armour and was phased out in favour of the PIAT mid-war. The Boys anti-tank rifle was a bolt action rifle fed from a five-shot magazine, loaded by means of a 5 round stripper clip. The rifle was large, heavy with a bipod at the front and a separate grip below the padded butt. This is a mark 2 practice round and is headstamped K 39 PII (Kynoch 1939, Practice mark 2 armour piercing) on the brass cartridge case. The Nickel cased bullet is held by 3 stab crimps at the case mouth. The brass primer has a purple annulus for a ball round. No licence is required to possess these inert rounds in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. The price is for each round. The price includes UK delivery. O 1321
