Pre-WW1 Standard serial no. S73844.
Here are some pics of Paul's lovely pre-WW1 Standard Pattern No.1. It's interesting for two reasons, the first is that is has the super-rare BSA ring front sight HERE for discussion) and the second because the rifle has been nickel-plated at some point (ie. a long time ago).
Paul reports that there is no sign of either etching on the cylinder or of roll stamping.
