    Axel,
    Once you have the images of the rifle stored in your pictures on your computer..........
    Trawl down to Manage Attachments below here, click on there and follow the menu to your computers pictures, as long as your file extensions are listed its easy.....have a go, as its the only way people can see what you are trying to sell.

    Axel,
    Well done all on there.
    That at least gives everybody a fair look at a great gun.
    Clearly without looking at it, and not knowing what you have with it, other than a good M14icon mag and a normal magazine supplied, it is £5500 GBP any day of the week, especially as it was bought originally by the Germanicon Army. Do you have the carrycase too?
    Good Luck it will sell as the rifle has its own pedigree and not many made.

    Hy Gil,
    Unfortunately, I do not have the transport case! Also, the box of the original packaging has been lost!

    Hi Gil

    This is an old thread but I amwondering if you have any information on a Parker Hale M85 serial number 00324F, which I was told was built on 14-11-86. I find this date a little odd as the other M85 lower serial numbers not in your provenance checks are later than this date.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Regards

    Steve

    Steve,

    As per PM but for the benefit of all future PH M85 owners I will repeat the 100% information from Bill Smallwoods own daily work sheets I hold as the remaining Parker Hale history on most rifles sold.

    The info you have there is slightly wrong so here goes:

    Parker Hale M85 serial number 000324F was setup and finished on the 27th November 1986 along with 00287F/00333F/00325F/00318F by Bill himself as recorded in his rifle records.

    Your rifle is recorded as shooting 15.5mm group @100 yards 10 rounds 0.3777 no scope requested and sold to a HOME SALE in the UKicon nothing else logged.

    Hope that helps you and others who might be interested.
    The query is often why did PH never do consistant numbering like 1, 2, 3 on numbering, when you find out the answer to that, you'll probably have found the Holy Grail. It frustrated the men that worked there too!!!
