They found Laidler and Smith guilty second time around. I do wonder if Laider will get a custodial sentence and if he will still be able to offer sniper rifle and optics advice from the confines of a comfy cell.

I'd be very surprised if they don't both receive custodial sentences....

The Mod Police were never going to let this go having royally Fu*#ed up the first trial...

I wonder if anyone in the MOD police will face charges for allegedly leading witnesses (among other things), first time round ... I bet they bloody don't.

Sad day in my opinion.

An L96 in any capacity is as rare as unicorn horns, they we're never released from service to to arms control obligations.

Wth the exception of a tiny number preserved for official museum display, they have all been destroyed.

There are persistent rumours of L96's in public ownership however, if anyone has one on their FAC, they can expect a call from MOD plod at some point and they better have done their due diligence!

Much the same as the rounding up of L98's, even with proof of purchase and evidence they were actually available for public sale back in the day....

The MOD don't have the records to prove it it was an MOD registered rifle or not!

Illegally kept with the threat of being chopped.....

MOD plod couldn't find their collective arses with both hands if you ask me!
