    Well here is the latest:

    "CANADIAN LONG BRANCH ENFIELD No4 Mk1* T SNIPER RIFLE"

    https://www.gunbroker.com/item/959384597


    I love the appeals to sources.
    He is basically trolling the forum at this point.
    This guy knows exactly what he is doing.
    I see he has changed the titles on some of his other listings.

    Now here comes the other hard-headed buyer phenomena: "All the other items they are selling are fake or reproduction, but the one thing I bought must be real and an exception if he says so!"


    Too bad his name and reputation does not show up at the top of the search engine results.

    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).

    He's aware that is, that he's crooked.

    What if?

    Well here is a lark from left field!
    I am just wondering if in the big scheme of things if Holland & Holland still had the patent rites to the Sniper T configuration and that if so then in copying that configuration and on selling it as a bona fife T infringes on that copyright. Not that H&H would worry about a small fry like this bloke.
    Or are there no patent rites to the said configuration due to war time expediencies.....Just a thought!

    I would like to cross post this one more time with an update in case anyone does not want to follow the other thread.

    Fake T99 Sniper on GB | Gunboards Forums

    Well usmctorch figured it out:
    Wonder if he took the fall on purpose to leave bad feedback or found it out from the forums or something.




    I see "Drak" on gunboards and "Draks" are one and the same despite some past denials, and that he had been up to the exact same behavior on gunbroker for over a decade. Add in some old potential stolen valor for a nice cherry on top.
    Thread with the same seller from 2008:

    Another Japanese Type 1 Experimental Paratroop rifle | Gunboards Forums
