    I'm not Gil, but the M86/M87 was marketed to Military, Police and Civilian purchasers.

    The only military adoption of which I'm aware was Canadaicon as the C3A1.

    Numerous M86/M87 rifles for sale in recent years claimed (Mostly UKicon) police provinance.

    Thanks mate for filling in. Apologies I was away in deepest Africa visiting my son whose in the Army there so out of comms for a good few days.
    All sorted and answered absolutley spot on.
    There is no detail other than if recorded by PH staff as to whether it went to a UKicon or Foreign Army for use I'm afraid.

    Lots of M86/M87's recorded sold to all Forces especially Lincolnshire Police/Precision Sports/Franceicon/Metropolitan Police and West Midlands Police each in full detail either side of that number 02134C all produced around 1987/1988.
    Sorry not on file.
