Your .303 made in 1901 never had a cleaning rod. Cleaning rods were with drawn from service many years before.

Would by any chance your .303 made in 1901 also say VR? If so it very likely is a counterfeit.
Says "VR Enfield 1872" on right side, "VR B.E. Co 1900" on left side. Rods were withdrawn from service? So it is correct without a rod?

Yes that is correct it never had a clearing rod as a .303.

You Action is very interesting and would make an interesting novelty to a collector. 1st year of production on one side and and last year of production in Victoria range on the other.
It has Australian property marks also. Really nice one. Victoria State. Stock has never been sanded.

That's right, Rob, it's a half-length rod. The MLM mk. II and the MLE rods are the same. Last year at a gun show, I bought a couple of repro ones from John Denner, the Canadian dealer. He said he had no more, but I don't know if he meant with him at the show or ever in eternity. Why not drop him an e-mail? He's at http://www.denner.ca.

All the best,

I wonder if Denner was getting them from Gary Baron in Montreal. He stopped making them and decided to keep the money of the people with orders pending, including me. Burned me for $60.00.
