    My Grandpa's BSA

    Just got this in the mail today from back home in BC. It is a BSA Meteor, the same one my grandfather taught me marksmanship on. Haven't been able to determine what Mk it is as I'm pretty sure the serial number starts with NE and everything I've found online so far doesn't have NE prefixes. Either way it is at least 50 years old and my mother thinks its much older than that as she's positive she remembers her dad having it when she was a teenager (she's in her mid 70's).

    I'm thinking they mean air rifle

    BSA used to make great stuff. My uncle has a beautiful 7x57 on a Mauser action.

    That is a good score!

    I have a Crosman 870 that I bought with paper route money in 75 that I need to reseal so I can pass it on to my grandson.
