the sabs range-finding was better than that of the british manners. the sabs measure the ‘grating’ fall of a steel ball marked 10 cm in diameter, which the rifleman grasps between the thumb and forefinger of either hand. a 1/25th moa click is marked at 5-cm intervals from 4-1/2-miles to 10-miles.
later, firearms historian tom weaver discovered musgrave and began to refine musgraves rifles. he developed the browning system, which allowed for ready-to-fire rifle action with no need for a separate bolt or magazine. the guns were then used as police rifles and found their way into the hands of special forces units, including the american green berets.
he then designed and built the follow-on musgrave svt and super vickers rifles, as well as the to-be-launched musgrave/jack turnbull tactical rifle. the svt is the first iteration of the former’s svt, or.223 tactical, and is chambered in 5.56mm nato and has 18-inch barrels with free-floating bullets. its action is remarkably similar to a m400 musgrave .
the super vickers was designed for government agencies and military units, such as the u.s. army special forces, the special operations command , and the marine special operations command . for the rifle, weaver designed and produced the high-end super vickers . both rifles are very similar to musgrave svt rifles but feature many other refinements.
the lyttelton rifle is the rarest of all the musgrave rifles. according to the musgrave gun club, it was manufactured from 1944 to 1948; with only 35 sold, all of which being registered with the club. the early lyttelton rifles were manufactured with a buttstock option, later models were all fitted with crescent buttstocks, and there were also other variations that were manufactured during the later production run. the lyttelton action was an unusual design. the rifle had a heavy barrel, which was pressed into a receiver which was then pressure fitted with the barrel. this was believed to give the lyttelton rifle its exceptional strength. the lyttelton action was fitted with a strong and large trigger knurled lever action, and was not very ergonomic.
much of lyttelton’s artillery ammunition, which was actually designed for many other purposes than the lyttelton rifle, was in fact used with it, and sold to both the army and the air force. there were also some lyttelton rifles manufactured for the rhodesian national army.
the original musgrave actions had a flat bedding area under the trigger guard, which carried the bolt upright when closing. with the bolt carrier fixed and the recoil spring installed, an ejector rod was screwed into the receiver so it could be unhooked from the rammer pin and removed. the extractor rod that held the extractor in place was also screw-threaded to allow for disassembly for repair, if necessary. the other side of the receiver still had a full bedding surface.
during the 1960s and early 1970s several musgrave rifles underwent similar alterations to the lyttelton, and are referred to as the “fifa” series of rifles. the alterations were: 1) using a slightly different action with a flat bedding surface; 2) the extractor rod being provided with a plug that allowed for easier disassembly and maintenance; 3) the bolt carrier being provided with a wedge spring and a small wedge that was used for a split pin action in the face of the bolt carrier, which allowed for the dust cover to be removed and the operating rod to be removed.
