This is a project that I started more than 20 years ago.

When I started it I never thought I'd have all-original scopes (at the time, the Snooper scope hadn't even been identified). I was lucky to get an MG-15 back when those were still somewhat readily available.

And then, I hit a wall regarding the No 32 Sniper scope mount. Over the years, I have had many people try to help, and many machinists take a look, but we could never get one across the line to my satisfaction. Finally, Sni9er (JJ Industries) helped me do it and finish this project. There are surely some artistic liberties taken, largely because the original props had a resin cast rear half. Mine is all the real metal (heavy) MG-15.

Pretty happy with this, but happier to finally call this very, very old project complete.
