    I take it it will be a British BMB made shell but with a Canadian liner, did they do this with all there HSRAC or did some have the British made liners.

    I was going to remove the liner just to find the stamps...but when I had the bolt loosened off, the liner was stuck in place. The rubber bumpers seem to be one with the shell. Not sure if I want to pop it off since it could have been in that same position for eons.

    Best left as is I reckon, was it common practice to use the Canadian liners, were they better than the British ones.
