    Front sight not correct. Install correct height and shooting high goes away. Had the same problem with my Israeli K98 7,62.

    If you have erratic ignition the grouping will probably be erratic too. Old ammo doesn't necessarily mean bad ammo. It should be similar to today's commercial ammo although in my experience...

    A good honest gun. Well worth having depending on the price. If a good story comes with it, better.

    IIRC some time ago it was said the P14 in British service was readily EYed later on due to parts not being interchangeable. But rifle still in excellent condition.

    I have a Stevens 22/410 O/U made in the 19thirties. Still works fine and very accurate. Selector switch is delicate, pity.

    Consider pricing the rifle and scope separately, to arrive at a quick value. However, a dedicated sniper should be worth more than the component parts if the provenance can be determined.

    Barrel length

    I am curious how the barrel length of the no 1, no 4 and no 5 rifles was determined. It seems if a shorter barrel would have been just as good in the no 1 and no 4, except for entrenched resistance...
