Termites taking stock
Some months back you published a letter from a reader with a rather neglected and corroded rifle he came across in northern Europe. It reminded me of the badly damaged stock on an Australian rifle which had been attacked by termites.
This particular one, a Brno .22 repeating rifle, had been in storage in the Top End of the NT some years ago, but termites managed to get into the storage area and the rifle ended up with a rather interesting pattern of termite damage to the stock.
I’ve included a photo of the damaged rifle you may be interested in publishing in your excellent magazine.
