    I meant to post this earlier, but here is a link to a recent ebay auction of one of the FN EX8 top cover and optic: British Experimental L1A1 Enfield Sniper Scope for EX8 Experimantal Rifle | eBay

    Final sale price was $1641 USD, which works out to $2180 CDN. I likely would not have been in the bidding for that one.

    I have saved a couple photos of this sight before it disappears from ebay. Note the CR number is on the tube, as opposed to inside the lens as on my Cdn example.

    That stuff was still in the weapon's techs drawers when I started out in Victoria...I remember lots of it. They couldn't use it for anything...it sat. Wish we'd had more foresight. But then we'd still have sold it along the way for a comparatively small price from what it's worth now or future.

    My god, that's a lot of money!

    I suppose it's far rarer than the No32 scopes that come up for sale and some of them fetch very strong money.

    Sad thing about these auctions is: If its in the US, it will mostly never come out again. It is the black hole for small arms surplus. They can grap everything (import) but you wont get it out again. So many missed items... Congratulation to whoever won this. Wont get cheaper over the next couple decades.
