  • 1916 Lithgow gold plated presentation gun

    Here is the gun that was presented to a major after his service in the army. I have been told its been in two collectors hands for the last 30 years and I am yet to speak to the other collector on how he got the gun. Its not number matching but looks and gauges up to be a possibly good shooter. The gold plating is showing signs of wear and tarnishing, but its at least 30 years old.

    The bayonet is also nice addition to the gun.

    I will attempt to get more details and post what I find out.

        That's a keeper Bathurst - and a great part of Aussie history as well.

          Looks more like burnished Brass than GOLD.
          GOLD does not tarnish at all.

            Could be just wear down to the plating and not tarnishing.

          Interesting. Seen them chromed but never gold plated!
