    WW1 SMLE sniper scope

    Gents, there is a WW1 SMLE scope for sale on the french Naturabuy site.
    I know little about these; but this looks original and in good condition in the photos.
    Expensive maybe! but I assume it's a rare find.
    heres the link if anyone is interested.

    Yep, it's the real deal although the rings are after the event replacements. In one of the photo's showing the underside of the scope you can see the two small screw holes where the screws locating the original one piece upper mount were positioned. The rifle shown in the last picture shows the typical set up for this type of scope.

    It actually is a decent price for one. I have seen them sell for as high as $2500.00 CAD. On the other hand I was fortunate enough to pick one up this month at auction for $400.00 CAD.

    Here is mine.
