    T4 H&H Sniper for sale on GunPost

    Ran across this ad while surfing. Not really my cup of tea, but I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers. Requires deep pockets:

    That must be a very rare early No4 variant as LSA ceased manufacture & closed down in 1935


    Originally founded as The London Armoury Co Ltd in 1856, this company was dissolved, reconstituted and incorporated as The London Small Arms Co Ltd in 1866. Like the Birmingham Small Arms Co formed in 1861 (better known today for the vehicle manufacture it commenced in the early twentieth century), it was established by a private consortium of gun-makers in order to compete more effectively with the proposed Royal Small Arms Factory at Enfield, opened in 1857, in the mechanised production of firearms with interchangeable parts for the Britishicon government. From 1867 onwards, the London and Birmingham companies maintained an agreement to fix wage levels and product prices, and share contracts for rifle production.
    Unlike its larger northern counterpart, however, the London Small Arms Co did not successfully diversify its production, and remained a small enterprise. Whereas immediately prior to the First World War, the Royal Small Arms Factory at Enfield was producing 1,000 new rifles, and repairing a further 1,000, each week, and the Birmingham Small Arms Co was producing 750 rifles a week, the London Small Arms Co was producing just 250 rifles per week. Upon the outbreak of hostilities with Germanyicon, the British government asked both the London and Birmingham companies to step up production. By 1915, however, all the available land on the London Small Arms Co’s factory site in Tower Hamlets was used, leaving no room for further expansion. The dissolution of the company was agreed in 1935.
    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...

    He says it is a 1945. Probably the worst pictures ever.

    Probably a BSA not LSA. It also isn't a $10,000 dollar rifle as he claims, at least not with today's exchange rate!

    Yes, you can't really say a great deal about it with the poor photographs. It's probably right enough, but I'd want much better views before contemplated parting with even half of what matey's wanting for it....

    Congratulations on acquiring the Luke Tippins long lee, superbee - I was wondering who picked it up. I'm always antsy about dealing where I can't do a "face-to-face".

    These people make me laugh, asking such high prices and cant even be bothered to supply decent pictures to back it up.

    As I do not need another 1945 BSA No.4 Mk.I (T), I wrote and offered my help to the seller in terms of corrections e.g. BSA not LSA, No.4 Mk.I (T) not T4 etc. I still do not know the rifle and scope serial numbers or if they really are matched. Some sellers think that if the bolt matches the body that the rifle is “matching” and without decent photos, ideally the right way up, we cannot verify this seller’s claim. The No.15 Mk.I chest has two different rifle serial numbers written on it. He wants $10,000 CAD. Seller took great offence at my offer to help, and made accusations, so I backed off and wished him well with his sale.

    People can only try to help Colin. If they refuse that only raises red flags.

    Happily the seller is now open to receiving help, which is still freely available.
