    Personally the specific story of the specific weapon is not what I was looking for. What I want is one in shooting condition that is exactly like the one used back in WW1 on the front, and this one will be more than appropriate for that. Only the plate seems to be different than one used in the war by the CEF. Thank you for the info!

    It is going to be a rather expensive shooter...
    Current bid is $1450. Add buyer's premium and taxes, and it is scaring 2 grand. And the auction isn't going to end for a while.

    Yep I seen that. That's the risk of going to auctions, you may get someone who wants it more than you.

    Don't think that Home Guard Ross's are second-class or somehow cheaper. Quite the opposite: They're highly collectible in their own right, not as common in North America (more so in Britain, obviously), and are often in better-than-Canadian-issue condition. Ross collectors place a high value on them.

    And I'd love to find this "local dump" where people find Ross actions lying about! I'd walk across broken glass to get my hands on a Ross action. Or receiver. Or bolt....

    I suspect somebody was cleaning out a family members house and didn't know what they had.

    No doubt. I never seem to be in the right place. The only things that drift my way are frayed swivel chairs.
