    No. 32 Scope Date

    What is the last year marked on the tube of a No. 32 Mark 3 scope (1946)?

    Thank you all.

    Yes, never seen a UKicon made scope dated later than 1946. (The very last of the Kershaw Mk3's are 46 dated). I believe the contracts between the government & H&H finally finished in April of that year. I know that some scopes made/reworked by foreign governments were dated post-war, though.

    Not sure about REL Mk3's - some are dated 1945 & some are undated. Serial No 1-C is definitely dated 1945. Never heard of a 1946 example, but there may be someone out there who knows differently....
