Officer carbine
      #308088 - 22/11/17 06:12 AM



I cleaned her up and did a few fixes, put her back into 'home service'.

This is a hard working gun around the farm. It is one of my favourites, it gets carried a lot in the bush.

When I pulled the action out of the fore stock I got a surprise.
What I did want to show you was this recoil lug that I found mounted on the barrel. I have never seen anything quite like it before. It looks to be very well done. Unsure who did this, pretty sure that it isn't factory. Or is it?

Sorry englishman_ca, missed this early, from what I have seen (on like 20 Lee Speed (BSA Sporters) & LSA Sporters) nearly all had that lug, with most being drilled & tapped for a screw, set inside a Diamond shaped ferrule.

Cool old rifle you have there, I almost bought a BSA Officers Carbine some time ago, it had the tang sliding safety .

Thank you for sharing your one with us !

I like the balance of these little carbines. Here is another one that I assembled from parts.
I restore martial arms, and found that I had an accumulation of take off non military parts in the bins. so....

This one has a BSA commercial receiver.


I cut and drawfiled the rifle barrel to carbine length and taper.
I made the forestock out of a table leg of an antique dining table.
That old growth walnut is impossible to find as lumber these days.
The stock now that it has been oiled is a perfect colour/grain match to that of the original 100 year old butt stock.

To satisfy my OCD, I am replacing all the martial marked bits with commercial as I find them.
