Thread: BSA Monarch rifle

  1. #1

    Default BSA Monarch rifle

    I have a BSA Monarch rifle, chambered in 30-06, which was bought new in 1972. The rifle is my go to gun; it has harvested perhaps 20 moose as well as several bear and caribou.

    Three years ago on a hunt, one of the large flat head screws running through the trigger assembly to the action dropped out. I was unable to find it. The action is loose in the stock and I cannot use the firearm. I checked with a couple of the catalog sources, but no one had a line on a new screw. I am unsure of its exact length, but am most certain it is a British Whitworth Thread fastener.

    The rifle has a tremendous value to me; its the first high powered firearm given me by my father, who has passed. Too, its a great shooting gun. I want very much to have it repaired. I can get it to Anchorage, as I fly in there quite often. Or, if I can get a line on the screw I need, I can fix it myself.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks much.

    Your BSA should take a 98 Mauser screw. They are ersatz copies of commercial 98's and as such a few parts should interchange.

    You might call Numrich, they list a BSA Monarch parts list and have a trigger housing assembly listed, at a price of $51.10. But you won't need the whole assy., probably. They may have just the screw you need.

    Here is the page of the Monarch parts list. Good luck, I know how important certain guns can be, especially from Dad

    Thanks for the tips, guys. I checked with the gal at Numrich, and she does not have the screw. I had called them a couple of years ago as well. I'll keep looking, and if exhausted, its nice to know one can be made. Thanks again.

    If it is the same as a Mauser 98 then screws are cheap enough to try even if they do not work out. I seem to remember that some of the Mauser copies used a different threads per inch but it is most likely the same.

    Midway has screws.
