No8 Mk1
Fazakerley
1951
Serial No A8674
Calibre .22
Price: £1,100

Very Good Condition

There were two action styles, one is very similar to the No5 & the second based on a standard No4 Action both may or may not have the original .303 ejector threaded hole on the side of the receiver

This version is based on the No4 style of action which has not been machined for the .303 ejector screw

The rear sight is correct and has the "H" setting when used with the Land Scape Targets.

Whilst BSA designed and manufactured the No.8 rifle at the Shirley factory on the outskirts of Birmingham, a significant number,
probably the greater, of rifles were produced at Fazakerley, the Royal Ordnance Factory in Lancashire.

Matching serial numbers on the Bolt, Action & Fore-end. The original rubber butt pad is still in excellent condition

This a Genuine No8 built in 1951
