Deactivated L85A1?

#1
Due to the demands of Mrs Gawanga, ("get this fucking junk out of my spare room!") I'm shifting a couple of old deactivated mosin nagants and stumbled across this:



I was under the impression that all the old A1s were retained/ retrofitted or whatnot but certainly not punted out to random collectors, along with BFAs and bayonets.

Any thoughts anyone? (other than the cheeky little bastard wanting 5 grand for it)

I could reactivate that :D

A bit pricey though!

You could knock him down a bit as the SUSAT is missing it's locking washers and nuts.

Why have a fore sight fitted with a SUSAT? and 5k? wtf 8O

PA, if your works the same standard as CC then I doubt you could reactivate it :wink:

My standard's much lower, but I'd use a bigger hammer :)

Well, the forward sling attachment is on the wrong side of the handguard...
Yup so it is, and the dust covers open.
Is this an airsoft replica?
Doubt it.

Going by the price it's more likely that it's one of the "inert" ones built by RO

Having never been a firearm there's a bit more that you can do with one, such as fit a 22 rimfire action to it.

And thinking about it, why would you have the foresight post mounted as well as the SUSAT?

(If he wants extra, tell him it's missing the locking nuts for the SUSAT windage adjustment).

Any guesses at how this fella got a bayonet and new BFA? Other than Ebay, of course...
Well I don't imagine he nicked the SA80 out of stores if that's what you mean.
