Description

The Ross rifle is a straight-pull bolt action .303 inch–calibre rifle that was produced in Canada from 1903 until 1918 The Ross Mk.II (or “model 1905”) rifle was highly successful in target shooting before World War I, but the close chamber tolerances, lack of primary extraction and overall length made the Mk.III (or “1910”) Ross rifle unsuitable for the conditions of trench warfare, exacerbated by the often poor quality ammunition issued.[2]

By 1916, the rifle had been withdrawn from front line service, but continued to be used by many snipers of the Canadian Expeditionary Force until the end of the war due to its exceptional accuracy.

THIS PARTICULAR RIFLE IS TOTALLY ORIGINAL AND UNMOLESTED. RIFLE HAS GOOD SHOOTING BORE, THE BOLT HAS BEEN CHECKED AND FUNCTIONS PERFECTLY.

OVERALL A GOOD SPECIMEN OF THESE VERY RARE RIFLES
