I took these pictures awhile back to annoy Left Boot for reasons now lost. The two Dara made sporters with the fine Detroit Patina finish have interesting socket markings. I think the maker was going for 1952 but slipped up with the 9 stamp. Enfield was also mispelled. Appparently they started out as sporters rather than military rifles bubba'd by the locals. These were part of the Springfield Sporters broomout before the infamous auction. Amusements for what it is worth.

"Detroit Patina"...love it! :D

A 350 year old bolt action rifle ought to bring a pretty hefty premium one would think. :eek: :rolleyes:

Bottom one's a Darra-Speed too???
I was going to say...I'd gladly give Mr. Breakey $50 hard cash for that bottom Khyber specimen.

Just to have as a novelty, of course. :rolleyes:

I fully understand the mystic thing about sporters...They make great floor lamps.
