Canadian Long Branch No 4 MK 1* dated 1943 converted to 7.62 Nato as a target rifle. This example shows SN 41L6968 with matching bolt and 0 bolt head. The top of the bolt shows the conversion #1779 and the Canadian Maple Leaf technical services proof. The barrel shows the Canadian arsenal mark and the 8.62 caliber mark. The bore rates as excellent plus. The rear sight is the correct Parker Hale 5C sight complete with the PH 59 aperture eyepiece.The wood is all Canadian. The forward to piece shows reinforcement strips. (An old military target shooters trick) The stocks show the LB and C broad arrow markings. These rifles were assembled at Long Branch(Canadian Arseanals) and were the military target rifles as used by both civilian and military shooters from the 1950's to the early 1970's. A very good plus example.
