    Looks like a similar concept is out there already: a spacer of a kind to go under the mask(?) and make a better seal.

    I'll throw this idea out there for anyone that wants to run with it: one of the problems we have is disposable masks that don't fit properly, particularly around the nose and cheeks as they are to...

    You have a sporterization of a MkII of some variety. If there is a serial number over the chamber then it would have been a commercial target rifle originally. If not, it's a cut-down ex-military...

    Yes the backsight is an abomination clearly done by a Bubba, presumably in civvies, but we *might* be looking at a genuine "T" action which has been "restored" out of service. I suggest the only...

    You are right that it is not a true vernier scale as it only has a single line, unlike the windgauge which is a true vernier, but when fitted to the Mk.III rifle and firing .303 Mk.VII, each line on...

    There seem to be several outfits in the UK keen to peddle various "lash-ups".

    Some admit what they are and some pretend not to know.

    Is the pad screwed straight to the receiver/body wall or is there a machined flat under the pad?

    The trajectory of 6.5x55 is much lower than .303BR so the standard MkIII backsight should have more than enough vertical travel. They also have vernier graduations on the side as well as the .303...

    Normally staked pad screws and a fragment of a "T" stamp would be good signs, but the staking doesn't look right to me. More photos needed as said above.

    When you say "a commercial M10" do you mean a 1910-E or 1910-R sporter? I believe every 1910 action is drilled and tapped for the standard sight/charger bridge, so if you can find one that should...
