I'm interested in gathering as much information as possible about the L42 rifle as it was deployed in the Falkland Islands. I've seen parts and pieces for sale on the boards once in a while and also see some parts and related items on Ebay now and then. I'm currently looking into trying to replicate one of these rifles and would appreciate any information, links and sources I can get. I know we have some British soldiers and ex-soldiers around these parts. Maybe someone can offer some first hand knowledge.
I've been an off and on British militaria collector for about fifteen years and have recently gotten the fever again.
I'm going to be looking for parts and collateral equipment that goes with the L42 as well as any gear a Falklands Era British sniper would have used in that role.
