Hello and welcome. I recently found this site as well. I'm still on my learning curve as well but am getting better every day. I'm sure someone will be able to shed some light on you question.

Is the rifle still in original form or has it been sporterized?

That is the importers mark.

Should be:

CAL - Century Arms (Ltd?) Older version of CAI

ST AIR VT = should be Saint Albans Vermont look closer AIR might actually be ALB

303 - .303 caliber, of course

CAN -adian


Post pictures ... we just love to see pictures

Thanks for the info I will look closer. Working on pics, it is all original as far as i can tell, shoots very well. Hope to have pics soon. Are all the markings going to be visible?

CAL - Century Arms (Ltd?) Older version of CAI,  these guys are idiots. They will ruin an excellent Milsup by stamping all that garbage on them

Pictures, pictures, pictures ....

I should have suggested the 'CAL' was a 'CAI' ...
