Unlikethe American counterpart “commercial off the shelf” sniper riflesolution, the (T) was fitted with an honest to goodness military-grade scope, and unlike its German adversaries, the 32 mk III had the windage adjustments in the optic. Although the (T)’s mounting system wasn’t as elaborate as some of the German systems, it was much better suited for hard military use, in any conditions and terain. The 3.5X scope has a large exit pupil and a fairly wide field of view. Simply stated there was no better scope during WWII than the 32 mk III
The No. 32 Mk III telescope was introduced on Oct. 7, 1944, and rectified most of the remaining shortcomings of the earlier scopes. Not only was it cheaper and easier to produce than the earlier versions, it was even more robust and far easier to use. Such was its quality that the Mk III telescope served the British Army until well into the 1990s, converted to a metric range scale and re-designated the L1A1 atop the 7.62x51 mm NATO L42A1, which was itself a conversion based on the No. 4(T).
No. 4(T) was the best sniper rifle fielded by any of the combatant nations in World War II, and it may well have been. It was a tough and accurate rifle, but was not without its faults. The complaint most often made about the No. 4(T) by those who had to use it was its weight. Today, a good, matched No. 4(T) in a transit chest with its accessories is a highly coveted collectors’ item—one that any serious collector of sniper rifles would be proud to own.
Each No. 4(T) rifle (with the exception of some early Enfield conversions) was fitted with a wooden cheekpiece that was attached to the butt with two screws. Its purpose was to enhance the shooter’s cheek weld with the stock and allow more consistent aiming and follow through. The scope sits a fair way above the bore on a No. 4(T) making the addition of the cheekpiece a very practical innovation
