42M-B....No serial.

Steel trap-door buttplate.

Has Brit Woolrich stamp and a 57 on the side of the receiver. P in a circle proof. That's it.

I picked up four 42 M-B US Property marked parts rifles. All have Brit proofs. Three are threaded 1/2" X 20.

1...The US serial # was scrubbed and BR375 stamped in it's place...threaded.

2...US serial 15491 (the Brits also serialed it 15491).....threaded.

3...US serial 6812 on barrel. No serial or US Property stamp on receiver....threaded.

4...US serial 21586. M192 & 1948 date stamped on barrel by the Brits.
