Matching Serial Numbers & in Very Good Condition
This example retains most of its Suncorite finish, and
has a excellent bore.
There were two action styles, one is very similar to the No5 & the
second based on a standard No4 Action.
This version is based on the No5 style of action.
Both were purpose built as the No8.
The rear sight is correct and has the Harmonised "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, mostly for a New Zealand Contract,
a significant number, probably the greater, of rifles were produced at
Fazakerley, the Royal Ordnance Factory in Lancashire.

rubber butt pad is still in excellent condition
