More Engraving. Note the proof marks on the first pictures. They are not the normal FN proof marks seen on other FN’s which are Belgium proof marks. The proof marks on this rifle are British. This was explained to me by Stephen Coker who is an authority on the Fraser Rifles.

Re: Sling swivels?

The swivel is in the correct place if it is on the barrel jacket. That is why the hole was placed in that position. The swivel was never intended to be in the wood on the forearm on the 81’s.

I believe that the round knob will not work on your rifle. The round knob requires a curved tang and your rifle has a straight tang.
