    RSM scope News..

    A simple informative post since there are still no details or date of sale but I received news that RSM is working on a reproduction of the No 32 MK 3 which will be a welcome since all current reproductions are of the mk1 (2moa click and quite annoying to graduate)

    Bugger! I've got a couple of real ones to restore & sell. I'd better get my skates on before mine become worthless......!$?!

    In all seriousness, if they make a good job of them & price them sensibly, I've no doubt they'll find a market. As with the real deal, most people's preference is for a Mk3.

    This is an area being discussed (currently under review) by the classic & historic committee as to whether or not repro's should be allowed in competition under the guise, in the spirit of the original.

    I see no reason why not but if the reticules are thinner and the optics show a marked improvement or higher magnification than I fear they may end up being persona non grata in competition use.

    Where is RSM"s location and what is their track record on making a good reproduction No 32 scope ? Any ideal as to when they will offer the Mk 3 for sale ?

    Mick, with the greatest respect to volunteer RO's at NRA comps, many can't tell the difference between whether a shooter should have a sandbag or not, have a tin hat target or an NRA roundel, use a sling, shooting jacket, bipod, or go off the elbows. Recognising whether a scope is genuine or reproduction is going to be a responsibility too far IMHO.

    I'm inclined to agree with you Roy.
    There's far more basic stuff to sort out first before getting involved in the nitty gritty of scopes, I posted it because somebody on the working group mentioned it the other day.

    Mine are not the best, but they are not too bad. I can think of lots of Enfields I'd rather have but instead of constantly striving for more, sometimes it's good to be satisfied with what one has...

    Are the RSM scopes any good? Would they hold zero under normal range use?
