Is my BSA .303 rifle an ex-military conversion? I am writing from the US, and I have a sporting rifle in.303 British calibre. It appears to be a military rifle which has been altered to a conventional sporting rifle.
I own an old BSA Standard air rifle in .22 calibre which has been in fairly regular use since the 1950s. I need to fit new springs and washers and I was thinking of fitting a telescopic sight because I find it not to be as accurate as it once
