It seems that a fairly large number of 46x,xxx and 47x,xxx rifles must have been in arsenal storage when the rod-bayonet model was adopted, and so wound up never being issued. A modest percentage of them are still in "mint" condition to this day. Mine came from a crate not opened until the late 1950s.
