    What about buying another rifle you have no emotional attachment to then bed and mount a repro mount for a tidy No.4(T) of your own? Then you can have 2 rifles to be proud of!

    jonh172. I'm certainly thinking that way now.What a can of worms to open looking for a decent No.4. I don't know where you are situated. But in the the UKicon you need permission too obtain another rifle. Sigh...

    It's not too bad but you need a good reason to posses.To obtain a firearm certificate in the first place is a major hurdle. Due to police checks etc. Don't get me wrong this in it's self is not a bad thing,due to the every increasing nutter population. It just detracts the fun element when you're after a new toy....

    And you bleeders reckon you got it tough;

    Here is W.A Firearms Branch latest folly, we now have them here asking by letter to which you have to reply with evidence what dates and what caliber rifle with its serial No. you used on range days and how many days you shot throughout the year based from club records.

    The only way to keep a sleeper is to get a collectors license now (More money to the Govt coffers, cannot be shot at all big fines if your caught shooting it) and put them on that as I can see them saying you did not use that 303 at all therefore why do you really need it as they the police are not interested in whether you see it as an investment, no way they are getting my "T".

    Ron, Its similar here, all clubs are required to keep a record of each members visits and what he shoots etc, in most cases its up to the individual to keep his records up to date, we don't have a separate ticket for collectors pieces etc, you just state you want a ........ for part of a collection.

    Its only recently the Police have started to check individual records on club visits.

    Nearly all my Firearms are on a collectors slots, No4T's L42 etc, you can fire them for demonstration purposes etc but are restricted to ammo. Pistols which are not Section 1, can be held as Historic section 7.1, or 7.3......... 7.1 you can keep at home but cannot fire them (they must be produced before 1919). 7.3 you have to keep them at a designated club .........but you can fire them.

    Maybe its an age thing but The days of lying in a soaked firing point trying to see the target in horizontal rain coming at you are over for me, except when I'm away with the Reserves, even then reading the weather can be an advantage.

    I'll volunteer for Look out, sitting in a tower looking over the estuary drinking tea and reading the graffiti beats getting drenched and freezing your nachos off, you still have to go out and Warn folk of the Danger area though, its amazing how many folk can't recognise a big red flag and read the notice underneath.

    I heard Australiaicon was pretty tough on firearm's.But not firing a collectable weapon is pretty draconian. To many liberal/snowflakes in power.Funny how they shove a musket in some bloke's hand when their liberty is threatened. Lol

    Hi all,

    Perhaps there's another thread appropriate for this but this current thread is recent...

    I have a No32 mk3, OS 2039 A, No 24024. Originally mated to rifle 32344 (on bracket and No8 mk1 steel transit case).

    The turrets are 'seized' and need servicing. Otherwise the optics are crisp and clear. I don't know if there's any other issues. Knowing the collector I purchased this (and the mismatched No4 mk1 T with it--rifle is matching (receiver, bolt), scope not matching to the rifle though) I can safely assume that the scope hadnt been serviced since originally sold surplus.

    I'm looking for advice on who can perform the necessary refurbishment. In Canadaicon, U.S. or U.K. I want the work done right and won't risk sending the scope to someone that isn't highly recommended.

    Perhaps Mr. Laidlericon, sir, you could help with info?



    Last discussion of No32 refurbishment is a bit dated.
