    Hello John,

    Not sure if the first letter is a W but looks to me like the struck out bracket number is - W32758.

    Spotted this for sale on "that auction site", pretty rare scope in 7.62 conversion format.

    It has the original No42 markings on the top so I hope that would ring alarm bells for anybody looking at this scope. But I will put a small mark inside.

    I am very happy with the result, its come...

    Was actually a blessing the 8 index plate holes were not drilled as the screws I was provided for those positions were not 8BA but metric.

    Got on the mill today and drilled and tapped the 8 x 8BA holes. Very time consuming, mainly as they are blind holes and keep withdrawing the tap and clearing the hole.
    Think I had to do 4 runs with...

    2 coats of enamel done and rubbed back with wire wool. I have then forced patina on all the exposed brass to subdue it down so it blends seamlessly.

    I would like it to be a little better but...

    Hello Peter,

    I opted to keep the original tube diameter and open up the casting. My rifle is deactivated so I'm going to make it a dummy turret. Too much work for a scope that won't be tracking...

    Worked on the main casting today to allow fitment over the scope tube. Took a lot longer than I was expecting but it had to be perfect.

    I tried to clamp it up in 4 jaw chuck but couldn't hold it...

    Its definitely decent quality stuff, the casting is flawless and the wheels are nicely done.

    Everything is raw so I have my work cut out to make it blend in with the scope in its current form....

    Thanks...

    The place I sourced the parts has asked me not to disclose sadly. The parts I have are from the scrap bin and will take a fair amount of work to make fit and work smooth.

    Cheers Peter, my suspicions were correct then. The thing that made me doubt it was that sum scopes have it and sum don't. Sum also only have it on one which is even stranger.
