    Interesting. I ask for pictures and what to look for then and now. So far, no Pics and no specifics. Guess if we buy one we are gonna have to dig.

    I'm in the same boat. Have the rifle en route. Need a decent scope and even a repro would be better to me than having to use a Weaver until the real deal comes along. Too bad that, if there is somebody making repros out there, they don't do a bunch of them and advertise them for what they are. Given the cost of originals, they could still make a hefty profit on them, I am sure. Not to mention the volume they would sell. There's a LOT of people looking for these. I also tire of all the cloak and dagger bullshit, sometimes.

    I wonder if it's like an original that requires a tool for adjusting the turrets? It would be nice if it was offered in the MK III version.

    Yes, there are repro scopes everywhere No32. ZF-41, ZF-4 (which are so good repros that they apparently reproduce the inherent flaws in the system - that's gotta be a good repro!)

    I will be interested to see where and by whom these were made. I would like one if they are a decent scope but for $600 you can buy a pretty nice scope these days it just won't look like that. I do wish these were clearly marked as reproductions.

    Wish they made these a few years ago, when I could still afford such an investment...

    Sorry no info to add to the OP, but I have a Repro PE scope in a SARCO mount, looks good and is much cheaper and more available. I will try and find some pics and post them. Small one is my avatar.

    These are looking better to me, by the minute.

    Since they copied a Mk II instead of a Mk III how long do you think it will be before they are carrying repro sight adjustment tools?

    Repro sight adjusting tools have been an eBay staple for maybe 10 years.

    Somebody should tell that Aussie guy on milsurp.com that the $100 export limit does not apply to individuals.

    Why not go to the man who made the tools for DoD and UK shooters Dr. Payne? I received both the MkI/MkII and MkIII tools from him in the 90's. He may not have them but maybe he can point you down a trail. Or is that to crazy?

    Here's a pic of the guncorps No32. There are several small things that make it clear it's a repro. The glass is nice, clear to the edges. I well see if it comes close on the box test when the weather permits. I've read these come from eastern Europe. The old adjustment tool fits fine.

    How do you get a hold of one of these now? The Numrich website no longer shows them?

    I'm sure thanks to this thread and others like it on other forums informing the collecting community about them they sold out. Keep checking back weekly and watch Ebay for some to pop up with inflated prices. Until I hear more in the field reviews I'm sticking with my Weaver V4.5 with the post/cross hair reticle and will leave the MKII/I in the safe.

    You need to post the scope serial numbers just to see if anybody here has the matching rifle.

    These scopes are so rugged that you would have to drop one on cement or from a moving truck to do harm. I'm not sure about posting ser.#'s just now maybe later.

    My reproduction No32 scope just showed up at the door. Damn nice looking, actually look better that the originals!

    My serial is 5 off of madcratebuilder's. Glass is REALLY nice, have a slight purple sheen, probably coated lenses.

    MJ, I'm gonna mount it on MY 1942 Savage T.

    They were at Numrich and were $599. I say "were", because it would appear that they are now gone.

    Run about 300 rounds or more through it and let us know.

    Will No42 lens fit in a No32 scope as a replacement?

    "Tulta munille!"

    "Terror is not a new weapon. Throughout history it has been used by those who could not prevail, either by persuasion or example. But inevitably they fail, either because men are not afraid to die for a life worth living, or because the terrorists themselves came to realize that free men cannot be frightened by threats, and that aggression would meet its own response. And it is in the light of that history that every nation today should know, be he friend or foe, that the United States has both the will and the weapons to join free men in standing up to their responsibilities."

    In most cases yes but there are a few that won't. Peter Laidler has written about this swap in detail. I can send you a link to his remembrances on line if you want to do some reading. It is a ton of good information on all things Enfield and the T''s.
