G'day again gents,

For those of you who like early lithgows, here's a few more pictures for your pleasure. Early lithgows like this one are getting quite hard to find even in Australia and this one is a particularly good one. Bolt is renumbered, but all other number match. Bore is absolutely perfect to my eye. Note the first stage machining for the volley sight aperture on the rear of the forend.

That is a true beauty, Homer. It's amazing to see such an early Lithgow in such fantastic condition!

And another ugly brother with battered stock, but this one in .22 caliber.

This one I can say shoots tin cans very well.
