RARE WW1 BRITISH SMLE SNIPER SCOPE – PERISCOPIC PRISM Picture(s) and Description:
A rare, original WW1 British sniper scope made by PERISCOPE PRISM CO in near mint condition as fitted to the .303" Short Magazine Lee Enfield complete with matching leather carry case and leather end caps. I believe production figure was between 10,000 and 15,000. The scope is in superb condition with undamaged lenses, the focus adjustment moves cleanly and the range drum also moves cleanly with no perceivable backlash. Overall the tube shows 95% original finish with no rust or pitting. You would find it hard to upgrade, has to be one of the nicest around. The scope is marked: PERISCOPE PRISM COMPANY LTD., LONDON PATENT - 3027 - 1915. It has the WD arrow and serial number F1857. Complete with original leather end caps and original leather carry case with matching serial number, and original over shoulder strap. The scope has the dovetail mount. For reference see Skennerton's "LEE ENFIELD RIFLE" pages 169 and 518.
