Details

Made by the Houghton Butcher Manufacturing Company this No.32 Mk.I scope is in good condition considering both its age and less than perfect storage in the decades since its manufacture. The tube has some very small areas of light pitting and the blue has minor scratches. Much of the original black paint on the brass parts has now worn. The lenses are cloudy. The reticle is present and unbroken.

There was a desperate shortage of sniper's rifles at the outbreak of the Second World War. Development of a No.4 sniper's rifle was undertaken in 1940 with trials rifles, before production of the No.4 rifle had begun. The rifle was fitted with the No.32 scope, originally designed for use with the Bren LMG, a removeable mount being used due to the weight of the scope. Officially adopted in 1942, the No.4 sniper's rifle had already been in use for some time.
