    I do think Ben Wallace MP given his background would understand the heritage aspects of the No.8. He is a former captain in the Scots Guards and also worked for the defence contractor QinetiQ as...

    One question I do have is how much interest is there / was there in trying to save the remaining No.8’s? I know this was looked at a few years ago when there was a previous Secretary of State for...

    I don’t think the MoD records go back too far so I don’t think they know. They will have a records and retention policy that will initially archive and then destroy records. I think that’s why they...

    The uk no.8 rifles have not been destroyed yet......

    Hello

    Out of interest I submitted a FoI to the MoD.

    They have confirmed that they haven’t destroyed the no.8’s and they still hold 6956 rifles. 2065 unserviceable No.8’s have however been...

    I’ve posted previously via the HBSA emailing list a few months ago but no one had any ideas there. I’ve found several rifles all marked the same with a circle in a c and a n four digit serial...

    Thank you for the response. Someone else has also suggested separately that it’s unlikely that the DCRA purchased any. They confirmed Parker Hale, NRA, fultons etc. could buy new no.4 mk.2’s from...
