    Howdy,

    just acquired a new (new to me lol) BSA 300 win mag. Looking to find what model it is, any cool facts about it, how much it is worth, how accurate, and the make and model of the scope, Make and model of Bipod, and any other cool information?

    Here is some pics! :D

    Here is some more,

    On top of the barrel it says: BSA LTD ENGLAND (BSA gun tripod stamp)

    On side of the barrel: (crown stamp) 300 MAGNUM 2.62"
    Below that: BNP 19 tons per (square stamp)" (stamp of what apears to be 2 swords crossed with w in the left part, B in the right part, and 3 in the bottom part.)

    On the receiver right before the barrel: crown stamp and BNP right below it.

    Further back on the receiver is an import mark: Eagle Arms NY NY

    On other side of receiver is: Made IN ENGLAND and below that the serial number: 14PXXX

    Thanks for the help!

    It's a BSA Monarch Deluxe imported by Eagle Arms back in the 60's - early 70's.
    MSRP then was $169.95. Or $5 - $10 more then a Remington Model 700 or Winchester Model 70.

    Herters also imported them at one time as the Model U-9.

    Accuracy is probably no better or worse then similar rifles of the day.
    You won't know until you shoot it.

    The scope is a cheap Chinese model of recent vintage, as the target knobs, huge power adjustment ring, and sunshade are things you didn't see back then when the rifle was new.
    And if you did, it had a well known European optics manufactures name on it.

    Same for the bi-pod.
    A recent addition to the rifle, as they were not used until very recently on hunting or target rifles.

    If it doesn't have Harris stamped on it, it is probably a cheap Chinese bi-pod too.

    Value might be in the $400 range, much more for the rifle alone then the cheap scope & bi-pod.

    IMO: If you junk the Chinese scope & bi-pod & put a good quailty 2-7x or 3-9X Leupold or Nikon scope, and a sling on it, you got yourself a very nice hunting rifle.

    Your rifle was submitted to the Birmingham Proof House in 1971.
