    BB prefix old BSA

    Hi, picked up an old BSA assumption itís a cadet as it was with a couple of CA prefix cadets.

    The knibbs site has b, ba and bc, but no bb?
    The spacing between the first and 2nd b is much further apart than the 2nd b and the numbers?


    Anyway, this and the CA rifles is pretty rough, worth saving or selling off at a car boot...


    Thanks!
    Thanks - Geoff.

    Hello Geoff,

    Just took a look at the pre-fix list at the back of John Knibbs 'The 'Golden Century' book which confirms no that BB prefix Cadets were produced for some reason.

    Ok, thanks.
    Must be mis-stamped and actually be B series, with another random B a little way in front. I did check again earlier to make sure it wasnít an 8 !


    Cheers!
    Thanks - Geoff.

    I recently saw a Cadet (can't remember if it was a Major or not now ) at a car boot sale that had 5 No.s starting with 2 but clearly no letters at all?!
    Had good deals with: Binners, DRACO, kevin.ronnie, Danny_Town, inproved, Chris Thrale, Mike Sharp, Reg Allen, Protek.
