    Hi

    I've also got one of the "little green" S&B PM 6x42 scopes and have just dug it out to have a look for you. I think mine (like a few it seems) is ex-Irish with an "AI" number on it.

    The scope didn't sell. Auctioneer opened for bids at £2,000 (given their estimate at £1,500 to £2,500), then worked his way down to £1,250 but got no bids so lot was passed.

    I did get a reply from the auctioneers yesterday with a picture I asked for attached below. However they made no comment when I also pointed out that the mount was a repro and likely the tin too!

    Hi Bp

    In my searches for the spare barrel 198 for my ZB numbered 198 (now that I know it exists from your post above!) it seems a barrel with this number was sold a couple of months ago. I have...

    Hi BP

    I've just been to strip mine for the details you're missing above for 198 (I presume you picked up the confirmation of the other numbers from a post of mine some years ago?). I'm happy...

    John, that's an interesting development on what I had understood the accepted position in the UK to be. On the basis that a conversion "ex-UK" is acceptable, then presumably a straight pull Bren...

    So from the comments and video etc does this mean that there has been some relaxation of the UK spec for straight pulls?
