No8 Mk1
Fazakerley
1950
Serial No A4412
Calibre .22
Price: £1,100

Matching Serial Numbers & in Very Good Condition

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

Built in 1952 and FTR'd at Enfield in 1970

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 has gone soft and expanded which is typical and exceptionally common, I have replaced this with a hard rubber type.


This a Genuine No8 built in 1950 that is 100% Correct
