gvel..Is Golden State or Sante Fe in small letters on barrel?
Neither. Other than the original Lithgow markings, all it has are the words "Jungle Rifle" deeply engraved on the left side of the receiver, and is painted with OD green paint.
It is one of the more elegantly done phonies that I have seen, as it more closely resembles a real jungle carbine than some of the others done on No. 1 actions.
Seeing as how it was done on a Lithgow, I was wondering if it was some kind of Australian commercial venture from the 60s or 70s.
