Before anyone wets their pants, I haven’t got one!


I am, however, building a replica. I have a nice No4 and a cheek riser and a reproduction scope and mount, but I have no idea how to fit the scope mount. I mean I know how to fit it, just not the exact angle/ position.

Hopefully my local gunsmith will have an idea, but just in case he doesn’t, has anyone any experience in this field?

Steve

That's fixable.

I have looked at the one on high wood classic arms, long and drooling, but my pockets aren’t deep enough I’m afraid. I need to speak to the guy who I have had recommended, he has a very good reputation in these ‘ere parts

There is a lot of detailed information in ".303 No.4(T) Sniper Rifle: An Armourer's Perspective" by Skennerton and Laidler

Hmm, there probably is, but with a price tag like that it’s going to have to stay there!

Back in the late 1970s, I lived in Lancashire and we used to cross the Pennines two or three times a year to visit Joihn Longstaff's shop for reloading consummables and ex-military .22 ammo. One day when we arrived we had to climb into the shop over a large pile of transit cases containing no4Ts. John was selling the complete kit for £120 and was having trouble shifting them. At that time, there was little interest in shooting 303 calibre. I did have a no1 Mk3* which I shot occasionally but this was free--- somebody walked into my office one day and just gave it to me.

Skennerton sells the book on CD for 25AUD. It is well worth the money
