    Got one myself John, I intended to graft part of a spare body on the part that Geoff had machined off........ its still in the back of a cabinet.............., lovely rifle but as its been said before, its an example of what not to do with a No4T.

    I sold the (Brindles) sight some time back (Mick will give you the run down on where the name of the sight originates). I'd started to make a scope bracket on one of the ships I was on and also a chassis system for it so I could use a set of AW stock panels.

    Unfortunately they went AWOL when I moved ship, (I did have a lot of projects onboard) including a **** ***........... anyway back to L42, I'm on the look out for a IWS sight if you come across one.

    Brindles = John Light.

    Geoff I will at some stage do a potted history on John Light and Brindles for the forum.

    Thanks for all the L42 feedback guys, as always it takes us off down the Enfield rabbit Warren to other fascinating lessor known areas of breed.

    Why have we moved Doug, if you don't mind me asking?
