    Default Vickers Bolt Action Sporting Rifles .404 .318 .242 Survey

    I am interested in the bolt action center fire sporting rifles made by Vickers and from 1927 Vickers Armstrong, between the wars.
    The three main calibers offered would appear to be .242, .318 and .404. However, there may have been other calibers offered such as .30/06.

    I am building up a data base of serial numbers to try to estimate the total number of these sporting bolt action rifles that Vickers marketed. I have read that the actions were made by DWM the rest of the rifle being completed by the trade rather than Vickers.

    Therefore if you have a Vickers sporting bolt action rifle, please post the details here, any photos showing proof marks especially appreciated. Many thanks.

    Hi AlanD
    Personally never seen a centre-fire Vickers rifles - MMGs? plenty :-) - in SA. A very few rimfire Martinis but that's it.
