    SA80's were on the Market in the 80's, Pat Walker guns had them (Advertised in Guns Review) , Although there are a few who don't like to see these adverts, I'm sure a few who have posted regarding the bayonets will testify to this. A few of the old adverts, the last one I love regarding the Sherman tanks........ I don't know what £10,000 in 86 would be worth now, but if anyone ever invents a time machine let me know.

    Ah, Adverts from the Halcyon Days of the Magazine 'Guns Review'!
    Wonderful Publication & as well as topics on upto date Firearms of the time.
    They were also excellent at naming & shaming Underhanded tactics on Legislation by various Police Forces. & Government sly moves in attempts at penalising Shooters & collectors. By Restricting even more on Private ownership.!.....


    The Sad ending of this publication was enacted by a VERY wealthy MP Privately. Due to the Gov Etc fearing being exposed about thier 'Practices' constantly.
    Simply by Making the Magazine a Financial offer it could not refuse. Magazine, rights, Name etc duly Purchased. & the whole Ensemble shut down & closed forever!,,,,
    Why? Because the 'Purchaser' could afford to do it easily, & Did!.....

    Voice Muzzled & shut down. Another Platform for Legitimate shooters removed. Another Organisation that were not afraid to speak out against unfair, underhanded & Morally wrong implementation's by SELF SERVING Officialdom. Who wanted to achieve thier eventual goal. Or removing Private Firearm Ownership. & Forging ahead on Emasculating the Britishicon nation as a whole!.....

    You can see what is Happening in Franceicon at present. With the Decent Members of that nation. Attempting to stand up against a corrupt & evil regime named the EU. The Wanting to form an EU Army. NOT for the protection & defence of member states against the threat from the East. but to CONTROL ALL of the various Populations of all EU Members states. Should thier Aforementioned Populations. DARE to speak out, Stand up & Resist. At Being DICTATED to! THAT, is the REAL reason for removal of private firearm ownership in the EU Etc!.....

    It is a Fact, that If you push people hard enough. There is a breaking point where enough is enough!..... I fear that point is fast approaching a LOT of Countries in these 'Unsettling' Times!...…..

    Mike, There was a bloke in the thirties who had a similar idea, but went in a bit heavy handed in 39, but lets not get political, The SA80 bayonet is something that never graced my collection, Although I have stopped collecting now, still interested in cold steel.

    If anyone is looking for a frog let me know I have a few.

    Even production of that very advert didn't prevent them taking the case on. Yoiu just couldn't make it up......... and they STILL insisted that we must have stolen them. Alas, nobody could quite establish who we had - if indeed we had - stolen them from.

    That would be "FATS" in Atlanta, Georgia. They also did L9 pistol laser simulators for the MoD.

    I guess the old saying " There it is in black and white" needs to be changed.......... talk abut a dog chasing its tale,
