Well, a few items from it. Very nice items, too.
Eric Clapton Collection
The sale is on 11 December.
Don't buy the one he used to shoot the sheriff
Lost on the majority of under 40's mind....!!
look at the lot before claptons.
What an amazing work of art, I hope my lottery numbers come up before the auction.
Nope. I've seen nicer cheaper guns. What a pretentious waste of cash.
This is more like it. But what is that scope actually for?
I shall rephrase that question for the benefit of the challenged:
Which piece of equipment was that particular scope intended to be fitted to?
I don't know why Holts let things like this through - they're supposed to be firearms experts....
This is not any sort of "sniper" equipment; its a standard 1950s No4 Mk2 thats had an after-market scope mount screwed on. The No22 scope in there is a common type of artillery optic (depending upon Mark number, used on 18 pdrs, 25 pdrs, 6 pdr anti-tank, 2 pdr anti-tank, etc). The No22 has no windage or elevation adjustment, so useless as a telescopic sight. It also appears to be on back to front, so the target would appear very small indeed....
rubbish, there's a rap version of the song
A crap version you mean. Some of us young'uns still recognise talent and have enough taste to find music from before our time.
Some very nice Webley's on there. How could I purchase one as a presentation piece?
The sheriff was in fact shot first by a chap called Bob from the Caribbean. Clapton only shot the corpse.
Separate names with a comma.
