Price: £POA

Matching Serial Numbers & in Very Good Condition

Our research has identified two action styles, one is very similar to the No5 & the second based on a standard No4 Action.
Both of these actions can be found with & wthout the threaded hole for the .303 Ejector screw

This 1951 dated example is based on the No4 style of action which has not been drilled for the .303 Ejector Screw.

The other two screws on the side of the action are for mounting the Parker - Hale Model 5D Aperature Rear Sight
that was designed specifically for the No8 Rifle

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, Barrel & Fore-end
The original rubber butt pad is still in very good condition

This a Genuine No8 built in 1951 that is 100% Correct
