    Aldis scope

    I noticed today a Listing for an Aldis on eBay UKicon: WW1 Aldis Pattern No.3 Sniper Scope for SMLE .303 | eBay

    Do I see it right that this Aldis was originally on a H&H mount since it has the rifle markings on the scope tube (compared to the Purdey which had the rifle markings on the scope ring)? Seller also claims it is a 3rd Pattern Aldis scope, while I'm not an expert this looks more to be one of the earlier made scopes. So were the first ones made already 3rd Pattern?

    On the Purdey examples I have it is only the company name which is engraved onto the ring and the rifle serial number is engraved on the tube.

    The only real way to determine which mounts were originally installed is by the spacing of the rings and seller (who posts on here) believes it to be from a Purdey rifle.

    Cheers,



    Simon.

    P.S. Yes it is 3rd Pattern. Following the introduction of the 4th Pattern some 3rd were retro-fitted with a prism cell.
