Default 1928 Lithgow

I completely stumbled on to this rifle by shear luck. First, the 1920's Lithgow's are very rare as the factory was only authorized a skeleton crew. I believe less than 3200 rifles were made that year and I would venture to guess of the few remaining, none are marked with the Oster Gendarmie stamp on the nocks form. The rifle has no import marks, is nearly all matching with a beautiful bright bore. How a Australian rifle found it's way into the Austrian Police Department must really be quite a story. Regards, Rick.
