    Hi Roger, this was the sample that RSM originally produced when they started with their reproduction No. 32 scopes. It is not worth a penny. You should get rid of it quickly. I'd of course help you...

    What is the "web carry bag" that the OP in that thread is looking for? I am not sure whether he means that sling (?) or that plastic box on the left?

    I'm also having a bit of a tough time to imagine how to enlarge a locking lug. Skennerton however does not speak of "upgrades" from Mk.I to Mk.I*, just that on 21st December 1916 the Mk.I* was...
