Hi Everyone,

Would you have a look at this "British Carbine" I am hoping to look at this weekend.

I don't have a lot of information at the moment but if anyone has any suggestions, particularly regarding the marking on the butt plate.

best regards,

No unfortunately not, although I believe it's going to be of the constabulary/land transport corps tpe.

I'd lean towards a Constabulary Carbine. Cannot determine much from those photos, what's visible looks original etc.
Mx I believe is the county of Middlesex.
