I'm looking for information regarding a BSA rifle. I don't know much about it other than the serial number #702371, it was made by Birmingham Small Arms in England and it's a 30-06. It does have a distinct muzzle brake cut into the barrel. I think it might be an Imperial from a few things I have read on the net.
I was wondering where in England it might have been made and when. I was also wondering if its possible to find replacement scope rings for the original Parker Hale model rans4. I was recently at a sporting goods store and the fella mounting a new scope broke the locking screw on one of the mounts. I have read Parker Hale may have gone out of business. I was wondering if there are any replacement rings out there that would work. Any idea, information or suggestions would be great. JMO
