    It is a simple request really and not one that is hard to do by the seller takes 5 seconds to put the days paper next to it and happy snap it, your not implying anything its just verification for yourself with no malice or intent.

    Exactly... I even apologized for asking. It seemed too good to be true from the beginning. Between the price asked, no city name given in the state he 'resides' in, poor grammar, doesn't supply specific photos requested (receiver, showing the markings), and now refuses to take a verification photo; I'm gonna go a head and call scam.

    It's disappointing, but since I long ago gave up on the idea of getting my hands on a legitimate 'T' it's not a huge deal... If someone ever comes out with a good reproduction scope I'll probably sacrifice one of my No.4's to make a faux 'T' like I did for my 1903aFaux.

    Just keep track of it with perhaps the details of where it was found (Web site) so others can be fore warned, if some one is selling something and they get a prospective buyer then a verification snap would not be an issue, also them not willing to supply a location also gets the ears pricked up.
    Anyway all's well one will happen along one day for you bloke.

    It was on Armslist... I'm gonna report them as a scam, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Not accusing that seller of anything, but it might help to know the "sellers's" ID on Armslist in case anyone wishes to contact him about this rifle or is offered any other great items at less than half the value by this same seller. For an unknown reason about 300 records vanished overnight from my database leaving only about 1500.
    :-(
    The record on that rifle No. 4 MK. I (T) X33343 was one of them. As I recall it sold or at least was listed for sale at about $4,000 about a year ago. Being offered at $1,600 is a case of "too good to be true" in all likelihood.

    I have been burned by a "seller" Gerald Gallipoli in Quebec on a web site for gun owners. Money was sent and suddenly all communications stopped and no rifle showed up. I informed the Royal Canadianicon Mounted Police who showed no interest in the latter until I told them that he had a copy of my firearms licence and might try to use it to fraudulently obtain firearms.

    That pretty much confirms it as a scam. He implied he'd had it since the 60's...
