Original P53 currently stripped down ready to restore.
Can assemble for pics later

I had 3, rebuilt 1 and sold the other. Really don't need another so best moved on to a new home where it will be loved.
Sold out of service to (I think) The Berkshire or Buckighamshire Militia - BCK 675 on the tang

All parts present except sear spring and screw (think I have a spare in stock). 
May be 1 wood screw gone.

Selling in the UK only - probably quicker to arrive and cheaper than an IMA Indian version

£375 including UK postage

I can do those tomorrow. It'll look much better if I put it back together first.

Sorry for the delay. Flat out with work pre show so it'll be next Monday before I have a chance to take some pictures

Pictures at last
Quickly but not precisely assembled for the photographs

Missing (but may have spares) Tang screw, 1 trigger guard screw, butt plate top screw, hammer, sear spring and screw. No rod
Stock a bit wormy but an easy fix with low viscosity epoxy. 
It needs a good home and TLC. 
More info? Just ask

That is a long job with a syringe and wood hardener! Looks a good buy, were I still on that island in the German Ocean

Non-interchangeable I see. Hence the issue to the Militia. I wonder who made it with the spring bands?

Type 2 is spring bands. I'll have a look see if there's more info / markings on it.

My thanks
Jon
