    Here are a few more of my cleaned finds.

    First up is a very relic rifle action that I believe is another Remington Rolling block?

    Now onto to a few butt plates, I'm not too good with IDs on these so any help would be very much appreciated. I have numbered the pics to make it easier to identify any you may recognize.

    two views of the same, completely flat no curves to this and unusually thin any ideas what its from (scale is cm)

    No idea with either of these, I love the smaller left hand one, it's in great condition but I just cant find any pics showing a weapon with one like this, Im wondering due to the number of international bayonets found perhaps it is foreign also?

    Great finds - the trigger on that receiver pice definitely looks like a rolling block of some kind.

    Fascinating,

    Pit.

    No. 2 looks to be Snider or Martini Henry or similar, not really my fortee, the one on the right isn't Lee Enfield or Metford as theres no oil bottle trap.
    No. 3 left is a Savage M99
    No. 4 right is a Lee Metford butt plate.
    No. 5 right is Brown Bess so very old.
