    I can see where it would be hard to know what to put on it for a price; it's definitely a bit of an odd duck, that's for sure. The fact that it's so different might discourage the run-of-the-mill...

    These powers extended well after hostilities, which is why the control of the land was not immediately returned. Severe rationing lasted ten years after the end of the war in order to combat...

    A very "steampunk" looking device. I find the technology and workmanship of the old iron sights fascinating all on their own.

    I confess I really don't know the answer. Is anyone here a member on one of the specialist ELR or sniper's forums, like snipershide? There's probably people out there who've discussed this at length...
