Response to BSA 1919-39 Standard pattern ("S" & "T")

This is a lovely condition Standard with nice clear photo-etching on the cylinder.
It also has a rare transitional stock which has B.S.A impressed into the pistol grip
- like the later circa 1930-onwards rifles, but the pistol grip is also rounded - like
the earlier pattern rifles.

At some point a B.S.A no.8 folding peep sight was fitted, which entailed making cut-outs
in the top part of both the pistol grip and the front tip of the comb. I removed the sight
and had the stock repaired (thanks Lawrie!).

Here are the pics (note what a huge difference bright sunlight makes to the visibility of
the etching!):
