    Phew......., that was a shock, because me and James are meeting up next week! I'll tell him that he's died and I'm sure he'll chuckle! Regards

    just found this clip

    Seems to be dated 7 November 1985

    at approx. 19 seconds, near the end where you see the gold plated Mk4, there is the front end of a gold plated Mk5 at the top right of the screen.

    Does anyone have any idea where that gun is today?

    There used to be a gold plated one on display in the Tower of London from the Royal Armouries collection. I don't know if it's still on show now though.

    They don't seem to have the gold plated Mk5 (I searched their collections inventory using "Gold Plated" as the search term).
