For a minute there i thought you were re planking your deck with Enfields.:laugh:
What a collection they are all museum quality.

All the leather looks like it just came out of the shop. Is it all original?

All the lens covers are original or from DoD stock or from new contract replacement save the bottom '41T which has a set I bought out of Canada that turned out to be just a lower quality copy humpped with fake stamps and made out of quality clothing leater that was way to soft. I gifted that set to anther guy to hold him over till he finds a good set. A good waxing halped set thier shape and he still has them two years later. I replaced them with a NOS DoD set from Cpt. Peter Laidler in the UK. He was going through some old cases and bins and found six sets. Two are of the L42 CES issue from the 70's. I also have one set on anoter scope not pictured that might be the best repro I have ever seen or a recent as in '00 DoD let for items when they issued some L42's just before the Royal Marines deployed in '01. The L42 was in theater but may not have been deployed so some from stores went through the armoers shops at Warminster. Lots talk yea and nay going on in the UK over this.
I must lay them all out some time for a picture.

Museum quality is a good description. Very nice eye-candy.
