MK I” (For Rifle Boys} on left side of receiver. Visible numbers matching. Original early British disk-type muzzle and bracket-feet bipod present. Includes one original five round magazine. The Boys Anti-Tank rifles were issued to British, Canadian, and US forces in the early years of World War II.
