    M85

    Greetings,
    It's been a while since I've posted, but glad to be back. I've recently come to find out that an M85 is available and would like to obtain any information available.

    The sn is O0282f and it's in an OD green stock. It has the original bipod, sling, and rings.

    Please let me know if there is any other info I can provide.

    Many thanks,
    Ari

    Ari,
    I can confirm that Parker Hale M85 serial number 00282F was completed on the 27th April 1987, and built by Eddie Taff Chief Engineer.
    It fired a 14.5mm group @100 yards with 10 rounds.
    No scope was ordered or fitted with this order.

    It was built into a GREEN NATO stock and sold to the Germanicon Army under contract 10682 with 4 other M85 rifles.......232F/259F/281F/275F all were supplied without scopes fitted.
    That is all the information recorded in the PH records

    Very nice! Does anyone have a line on where I could source the one piece scope mount and an appropriate scope?
