Patch) sub-inspection cartouche, partially legible final inspection on top of stock comb and appears to be a script MPL (Mann Page Lomax). Sliding triangular bayonet secured under barrel.

Fine. Retains most of the original lacquer browned finish on the metal parts, with scattered small patches of minor surface oxidation and some surface roughness. Mechanically functional, good bore with moderate pitting along its length. Stock solid, but worn with some rounding to the sharp edges due to wear, not sanding. Numerous bumps and dings throughout. Metal markings crisp, cartouches with wear.
