Just scratch it, argues Jonathan Young. Your dog looks at you in dismay when you forget walkies again and head for the shed instead. But what do you do next? Where do you go for advice?

Bsa rifles serial numbers.
Yes, of course take it out for the day, and lift its skirts, because this means it not being ‘stood up’ Many, but not all, of our pages carry date information on the various rifles illustrated or discussed, where it has been possible to be sure of data. There are a number of methods by which a rifle can be dated, or at least bracketed between certain years of manufacture. For the latter, dates of introduction of military arms can be located within the Government “List of Changes” LoCs as can dates of obsolescence and of modification or upgrade to later marks.
You may not necessarily find specific date information within the text of particular pages, but often the images of advertisements or catalogue entries contain some dating ‘give-away’, such as the year in which a particular rifle achieved a notable competition score by someone, but which data is in graphic format and therefore not “searchable” by a text search engine.
Despite my having head the name Royal attributed to BSA rifles I can find no official confirmation of it. BSA used the names: Hunter Regent.
I have recently acquired a SMLE and would appreciate any assistance in dating and identifying the particular mark. It has a magazine cut off plate fitted, an adjustable foresight blade, and offset rear sight protector tabs but no windage adjustment. It has been suggested that it may be ‘s vintage but I have no way of knowing if this is correct. Any enlightenment would be eagerly received.
You may find the site given below of some help, without pictures it’s difficult to tell. I’ve a SMLE with rectangular cocking piece, but no cut off, still excellent to shoot even out to yds. You’ll probably get some more informed members answering your question, but if you haven’t seen the site below there is a mine of information available. The bolt has a matching number and the cocking piece is rectangular rather than round.

For a much more detailed record of your rifle’s manufacture and despatch from the factory, please refer to the above book. Two sources of date identification have been published, apparently before the uncertainty mentioned above was understood, by Dennis Hiller in his book Air Rifles and by P J Colman in his articles in Guns Review.
