I recently started to collect these. All are single shots. So far I have four.
Short .22 RF MkII - Navy marked.(Lee-Metford conversion - All MkII were Navy marked)
.22 RF MkIV* - New Zealand marked, 8-1928 dated on Stock Disk.
.22 RF MkIV* - Canadian marked with the Cooey rear sight. (AKA the Canadian 10A rear sight.)
.22 RF No.8 - Union of South Africa marked. Highest known serial known - About 175 or so numbers above the "highest" known one that is currently listed on Gunbroker as the highest known serial number.

I picked up two 1907 bayonets (16 inch) for the two MkIV*'s. Just something sinister about a .22 rifle that takes a 16 inch bayonet.GI2
I picked up a nice broad arrow NZ marked sling for the New Zealand IV*.
I do need a Canadian marked sling.
I have proper slings for the other two.

Spelling alert: it's Cooey, as in the H. W. Cooey Machine & Arms Company of Cobourg, Ontario. They were prominent in Canadian gun manufacture until the owner died suddenly and Winchester bought them out in the late 1950s. They made most every Canadian kid's first .22 rifle, generally a single shot bolt action.

Anyway, that sounds like a great collection!

A .22 with a bayonet would be pretty cool indeed!

I had a BSA martini mk3 international with Parker hale sights for a while. It shot very well, but I sold it to buy an anschutz
