Australian Line Thrower

Post by ron3350 » Fri 15 Mar 2019, 05:35

This Australian Line Thrower is converted from the No1 Mk111* from CSR Sydney. We only made the Mk111* pistols.
It comes in a wooden box with flaking line and the rockets are always missing. Bore is 1 1/4" (32mm). No 6793.

They were converted at the Small Arms Factory in Lithgow. Not just CSR pistols were converted, I have seen and photographed a Webley & Scott made example that was converted in Lithgow.

I just found out that the C.E.S label means Current Equipment Schedule. ie. the equipment parts that can be issued with a larger item.
eg. tools for a Land Rover or larger item. The other pistol that came with the line in the box did not have this sticker on it.

Is this the only line thrower with the forward handle under the barrel? I think every other line throwing pistol that I have seen had the support handle on top of the barrel.

C. E. S. should mean Complete Equipment Schedule, as far as I know.

Nice example by the way.
