    Been looking for the one-piece Parker Hale scope mount and correct scope for my M85. I reached out to Devizes gunsmith several months ago. He mentioned he may be able to help, but communication has ceased. I'm sure he's busy as hell.

    Anyway, I thought I would throw it out there and see if anyone has a lead.

    The one piece M85 Parker Hale scope mount is as rare as hen's teeth. I'm looking for one for a friend. Anybody know what a guy would have to pay? Source? Ron (Canadaicon).

    Damn fine rig you have there Gil makes me jealous it would have made a fine weapons system had not the AW system beat it by "a slim margin".

    As a side note Gil I have a 1957 230pp Parker Hale sales catalog coming seeing as I am from that vintage will be good to see some of the prices from back then Parker Hale charged, I will post a few pics when I get it here.

    Cinders that would be good mate. I have to say it never misses the centre and far better than my AI AW on that illusive first cold shot...........I know in Afghanistan the Snipers had the luxury of many a shot from one location, but sadly not in my day, and the basis I have always said, it was one shot and thats your lot............then make haste and bugger off quick time, because you were definately on your tod!!!

    Ron, Next stop Fultons at Bisley they have a few bits in. If you need their details let me know.
