Looking at another P-H. This one is a Safari Super...newer model for sure but I'm trying to date it as well as figure out what action it may have been built with. I know right away it's not an old military Mauser action...but what is it?
I know Brithunter should chime in on this one
The seller has indicated the following:
"on top of barrel, 'PARKER HALE LTD BIRMINGHAM ENGLAND', CAL 308W, then on left side BNP with crow above it. under side has 308 w stamped in two spots and also has the proof stamp 18 tons per sq ", 2.015, and cross swords with 0 or D on the left , a B or an 8 on the right and looks like a 4 on the bottom. on the side of the reciever has 4 digit sn with BNP and crown above it then Safari Super,bolt has 4 digit sn and also BNP with crown above...
also on the side of internal box mag has PARKER HALE ENGLAND 98/124 and there is also 53 stamped on the bottom of the reciever near the front bolt hole, trigger appears to be adjustable with two locking set screws.on the back of the trigger is a word I cant make out followed again by PARKER HALE ENGLAND"
Even though the barrel has the Birmingham markings...the weird part is that there is no serial number on the barrel...only matching numbers on the receiver and bolt.

Any help is appreciated
