What caliber Kiwi? I believe these were only checkered one year.....1940 so they are uncommon.

Not an early F in 38-55, they weren't chambered for it.

Hopefully it will turn out to be an 1899F in 38-55 for ya.

I thought him and Johnno were talking early 99F's.

Hopefully they weren't talking about 99's in general because if all they can find is two of them they're collecting the wrong guns.

Those late checkered F's are hard to fine here in the States...and in .250! Nice find.

Note that the brl has the last three digits stamped on the bottom.
