Heck, I'm just getting my '55 Faz mummy broken in to the point the bolt is slicking up!
Suncorite on Suncorite is NOT the world's slickest physical interface.

Nice looking rifle when we see a bit more of it MJ!
 
That's a grand looking rifle too, Shamu!
 
Actually, my Maltby has only been fired once as far as I know.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The stock was pretty well charcoal when  it was rescued from a house fire!!   :-)
LOL..

As we are on to late production No4Mk2's; I have a question!
One of these was advertised recently in France, and they said it was a parkerised finish instead of suncorite.
I was interested in the rifle; as it looked new (and was stated as having only had 40 odd rounds through it)
But I had a doubt about the parkerised finish. Is that possible for Faz 1955 production?
I think it's been sold nowCry

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I doubt it, mine is a '55 Faz from the wrap & its Suncorite.
IIRC the original was paint over park. (Suncorite over a parkerised metal.)
The later Savage made No4 Mk1*s were a greenish-colored park.

MJ you must have a huge workshop to hold your collection. You are lucky to live in a place that allows you to collect without hinderance; and seem to have a eye for a good rifle!
But how do you find the time to look after them all?Wink
