Default BSA Majestic

Since Kia Kaha posted his question about identifing his rifle ( BSA Monark) I decided to post a few photos of my BSA Majestic.
BSA stands for Birmingham Small Arms. Rifle was made in England in 1964. It is a .30-06 stocked in English Walnut. The rifling is cut one groove at a time. There is a muzzle brake on the barrel. The rifle weighs 6 1/4 pounds without the scope.

Kia Kaha is an unknown quantity at this point
Default The BSA Monarch 30.06

For comparisons. After seeing the great condition of Jeffs Majestic, I wonder if I can get my Monarch back to similar condition?
I added the photos here, and will add more because I tried for months to find out the whether my rifle was a Majestic or a Monarch. Finally thanks to Jeffs help, problem solved. Also this help from "djturnz"

"Deluxe fore end tip & rake angle, white shadow-line spacer, angled checkering matching the fore end cap lines, deluxe finger grip cap w/a white shadow-line spacer, Weatherby style reverse angle stock comb, w/a Monte carlo cheek piece (Weatherby was ergonomically smart), butt pad w/a white shadow-line spacer. It's am Monarch Deluxe which was made for America.


I would love to hear more feedback from anyone on these rifles. Any suggestions as to care and preserving them?

Regards

Kia Kaha

Default Suggestions for bolt?

I am a full time Hunter in New Zealands, Fiordland National Park and we have an annual rainfall ranging from 9 to 11 meters, So the rifle does get wet every now and then.
Does anyone have a suggestion to remove the spots from the bolt?

Default Re: BSA Majestic
