Barries rifle is serial #2, the location of serial#1 is known (also a 505). Looks like your up at the old coppermine in the SVC.
The picture was taken at the old copper mine.
I see you have a distinguished rifleman badge. I hope to Leg out at Perry in 2021.

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
