This rifle was produced in 1986 in India by the government rifle works at Ishapore.

This rifle is ALL matching, all parts are marked with the rifles full serial number. Mechanically the rifle is in excellent condition. Cosmetically, it is near unissued condition. Bore is bright and mirror like. Very small import marks on the receiver.
