    Red Star Mountain, a Chinese copy of the No32 Mk2, mine so far (1000 rnds +\- on a range, not bashing it around) functions ok, but the finish isn’t great and I assume the internals differ quite a bit.

    Additionally I understand columniation was a bit of a faff needing some better pads than it was supplied with, but Fulton kindly took care of that.

    I have only a couple of actual 32s and a few 53s and 42s, all seem to have or have had a nice smooth external finish; with no obvious rough machine marks, while only my repro has that machined ridged affect to the barrel and ocular bell.

    Where all the originals finished comparably smooth or do some genuine 32s have this banded rough finish that this (maybe?) REL and my RMS repro have?

    Mind you, the finish of some of the old, well used and totally worn out L1A1's was pretty dire - both internally and externally it has to be said!

    It is surprising that the Afghans didn't copy the scopes in the Khyber Pass same as the rifles--might get some interesting random collections of stampings and letterings that way! The C Broad is clearly fake, particularly since the Canadianicon issued rifles were mostly Long Branch and had the proper L series serial numbers on the mounts. Any Brit #4Ts which were issued to Canadian troops either wouldn't have had the C BRoad arrow on the mount or would have had it done properly

    I read the item description before it was removed from the Bay for whatever reason.

    It said it was purchased from realgun and verified by Ian Skennertonicon...
