    an example of straight up fraud No4T on GB

    ULTRA RARE BSA Shirley No.4 MKI T WW2 Sniper Rifle .303 Museum Quality! - Bolt Action Rifles at GunBroker.com : 911312511

    an example of straight up fraud No4T on GB

    pretty much everything on this gun is faked, apparently with the intention of deceiving the un educated.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction). Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    I mean at least it's a No4! My goodness I hope no one buys that thing. Grounds for divorce that is.

    Google image search for genuine 4(t) markings, check!
    Hammer, check!
    Harbor Freight letter and number stamp set, check!

    The “work” reminds me of a No5 that had an unusual scope mounted on it that someone also went to town stamping it up that was on GB about a year ago.

    It's really sad. This listing keeps coming back online like a boomerang. I tried to give the seller benefit of the doubt and message him and politely tell him that this is complete fantasy, but there was no response...so I guess he knows "what's up"...sad.

    Surprised at Gunbroker allowing it to be forecast as the real deal. Rose Brothers would be rolling in their graves!!

    I guess he'll eventually find a desperate buyer that'll pay, wouldn't want to be that guy. Then this guy will disappear and never be seen again.

    Wow, that is awful.

    Literally every bit is incorrect or totally wrong, cobbled together by an absolute muppet.
