BSA No6 Takedown .22 Rifle - Ser No:59099

Summary

The No6 was originally offered by BSA in standard format but in 1912, was offered in a “takedown” version. The principle difference is the strengthened receiver which is designed to accommodate the removable barrel. This rifle is in immaculate condition and is a superb example of this increasing rare model with original woodwork/metalwork all in superb condition.  The rifle is out of my personal rimfire collection and I don't really want to sell but it is not being shot, is collecting dust, hence the sale. The rifle has been thoroughly restored and serviced making this rifle a nice addition to a classic rimfire collection.


Receiver

The receiver is in very good condition with one mark on the right hand side of the receiver as shown in images attached. The receiver is the typical BSA small frame with a strengthened front section for the removable barrel and its locking screw. At the rear of the receiver there is a BSA folding No8 aperture rearsight. As was typical on BSA martini action’s there is no safety catch. The single pull trigger has a very crisp release at 3lb.15oz.  Markings are the BSA crest and factory proof marks.


Breech Block

The bolt is the typical martini henry tilting breech block mechanism. Nice, smooth breech block cycle with a positive locking/unlocking sequence. With little use, there is no wear and no damage to the breech block face. It is fitted with a gun state indicator, showing when the action is cocked. Markings are  limit to proof and inspectors stamps.


Barrel

The rifle has a sporting 25” barrel with 100% bluing and a flat crown. The barrel is in mint condition with bright and sharp rifling. Barrel has not been threaded and is fitted with a sling swivel. The barrel and scope can be removed by removing the large screw on the left side of the receiver. Markings are  limit to proof, calibre and inspectors stamps.


Furniture

The forend and butt have been professionally restored and are unmarked with no fractures. The butt is fitted with a sling swivel and the original BSA butt plate.


Scope

The period Lyman Junior scope was produced in 1935 and discontinued in 1936, it was designed for small bore rifles, had a magnification of 2.5 and featured Bausch & Lomb lenses with a fine wire reticule. Windage and elevation is integral with the mount.
