No8 Mk1
Fazakerley
Serial No A12499
Calibre .22
Price: £995

All Matching & 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 No4 style of action

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.

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.
T he foresight blade is non standard is typical Parker Hale after market target type.

This a Genuine No8 that is 100% correct.
