    Hello gents,

    This is my first post here. I picked up a Victory model like this one today and I'm curious about it's FTR. Doesn't MA 54 indicate it was refurbed at lithgow.

    Thanks

    Fine weapon you got there lithgow, with the original ctg. carton, the .38/200 ctgs, the canvas holster and all... Is the cleaning rod original to the holster?
    @ Miaharry, i have far-relatives living in Bundaberg, Queensland.

    Thanos-the cleaning rod and holster were bought at different times from the same source-both "brand new" after over 65 yrs but it is now a set-I will get a matching P37 webbing ammo pouch as well when I can but its a problem deciding when to stop getting all the possible bits of kit!
