Nope. I've seen nicer cheaper guns. What a pretentious waste of cash.

WAaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHH!!
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....

Ah, the No4 Mk II. Back from the ranges late afternoon, round the back of the cookhouse pouring boiling water down the barrels, smelling that nights tea being spoiled. Paradise :D

The sheriff was in fact shot first by a chap called Bob from the Caribbean. Clapton only shot the corpse.
I think he shot the deputy... :lol:

Some very nice Webley's on there. How could I purchase one as a presentation piece?
Provided it were for export, a section 5 dealer or a section 7 collector or lastly if you were to have it vandalised by deactivation! :x
