If these really are "original No4 snipers", even w/o scopes, presumably they have the police on had to control the crowds.I see Century has some original No4 snipers w/o scopes on sale at $399, are these trashed or are they worth it at this price?
Are you sure that the original "mounts" are included? The "bases", (i.e., the pads) that the mount attaches to are presumably included because they were permanently affixed to the receiver. I would be extremely surprised if the mounts, albeit scopeless, were in fact included....they include the original mounts.
The last I had heard these were the ones from Spring Sporters when they closed. They were original and had come from or through Indias as they had the screw in the stock and some were scrubed. These are the ones for $699. They also had sold some made up ones which were repros.
