    Model 1918 sniper scope made by PPCo, AOC or BSA

    I am restoring an original Pattern 1914 Mk.I* (T) sniper rifle, also known as the No.3 Mk.I* (T).

    The ideal is a PPCo made Model 1918 with rings for a Pattern 1914/No.3 rifle, and scope case. A correct scope in rings for a different rifle is still of interest.

    These scopes were also made by AOC in Australiaicon and some scopes are marked with the BSA piled rifles logo (a stack of three rifles). These scopes are often mistakenly called Pattern 1918 scopes or just PPCo scopes. This last one is confusing as PPCo also made a different model of scope earlier in the war.

    I am happy to purchase and I have some spare original sniper scopes to possibly work into a trade or part-trade deal.

    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.
