With thanks to Mike D for the words and pics:
This gun is a post-war model 27 made by Millard Brothers ("Milbro") in Scotland, on re-located German pre-war machinery. The action is a direct copy of the old German rifle, though the beech stock is more characteristically English in profile.
I acquired this gun with no finish on the stock, but as far as I can tell the originals had a plain clear finish with no stain. I cleaned it up a bit, but didn't try to make it TOO nice, and applied trusty old Tru-Oil.
The style of markings is quite different from the old German guns, with the logo bigger and the "British Made" line added. While this gun is in some ways not as well-made as its German predecessor, especially displaying a lot of unfinished milling marks, the metal polish and deep rich blueing are very English indeed.
The breech area allows further comparison to the details and workmanship of the pre-war DRP German gun. The screws and rear sight may actually be German-made parts, they certainly appear to be identical to the older gun from across the Channel.
Somewhat surprisingly, Milbro duplicated the fantastic pre-war adjustable 2-stage set-trigger mechanism on this gun. The adjuster screws again look identical to the older German gun, though the blade is only blued and not case-hardened.
Beech is really rather nice in its own right. Makes you wonder why so many makers insist on trying to make fake walnut out of it!
