I bet there will be some brisk bidding on these ones, especially the 375 2 1/2"
Degoins nailed it - some very fine pieces of kit there!

there is a 8x50R Mannlicher Lee Speed in auction that in general would fit into my safe but I think its a little bit to high for 700 euro with the basic military style stock













https://www.egun.de/market/item.php?id=14520022

I would prefer a real hunting stock with checkering, at least for this money

there is a 303 sporter, I suspect british made, in auction now https://www.dorotheum.com/de/l/7444639/#





on the barrel marked with "Proven and Sighted for the Mark VII High Velocitiy Cartridge"

they have BSA in the description but this is maybe a guess. anyway, never heard of such a barrel marking before. will the mark VII cartridge give adate when this build happen?

Fore-wood has cut-out for clip-loading bridge (Rifle No.1 Mk.II or III), but action and bolt are Lee Speed or Mark 1?

If the stock is not correct, maybe other parts are assembled from mis-matched time-line as well...

Mark.VII ammunition introduced around 1910.

Early Lee sporters are very good things IMHO, have several myself, but prefer complete replacement of dog-leg buttstock with a higher comb to put the shooter's eye behind the sights. Significantly reduces perceived recoil as well.
Cheek-weld, not chin-weld.

You can just make out BSA on the butt socket if you zoom in on the photo on the auction site.
