    Interesting. Is it the camera angle, or are the Range & Deflection drums a little taller than on originals? Scope in third photo looks like a real one to me, though not sure about its bracket......

    The turret rims are about 1/2 the size of a normal 32 turret.
    The range drum springs are not sufficient, in my estimation. (I just had one recently on the bench totally stripped down)
    The detents are mushy as hell.
    The reticle is a cookie cutter style. Lacks definition of a stadia wire and a post.
    The feet are not of sufficient size.
    I could go on. You get the idea, but they can be tarted up.
    I am in the process of tarting up two right now, but I am making parts by hand.
    The optics are superb ....
    Unfortunately, there is not a part that will interchange with a genuine No.32 scope.
    They appear to work decently as is, however I try and make them feel more like a normal 32 and last longer.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    That third photo is one I took of my Mk3/orginal bracket, when showing another forum member how to adjust the slipping drums. It was from the other enfield (gunboards) forum.

    Found some pictures, and now just have to find how to transfer them here.
    stay tuned...
    You now have a picture of the repro MK.3 scope less tube.
    Some parts are not included but one of each major component is there.
    There is nothing that will interchange with the real thing.
    The last two pictures are the guts less the tube and some components that are duplicated
    cheers,
    Warren

    The makers are working from drawings and what they can find in the way of information online. They cannot import originals to the PRC in order to copy them. I believe they will welcome accurate information if anyone wishes to provide it to them, and made good use of it.
