    BSA Four by Twenty

    Just picked up an old scope with an integral one piece sliding mount,presumably to accommodate eye relief for the Mercury and Airsporters.

    Its reticle is a new one to me,instead of a thirty thirty it has one verticle post and two horizontals with a gap between all three.

    Could someone give this set up a title please?.

    You have a BSA Mark 6 from the 1970s-80s. I like the clean lines of these scopes due to the lack of mount rings.

    I recently acquired a Mark 7, which is a 3-7x20 scope with the same mounting system and reticle, which I plan to test in the near future on an early Meteor.

    Kind regards,

    John

    Long time back I heard it called a Jaeger numer eins. Was told there were varriations too, one with a thin horizontal & one with a thin horizontal plus a thin vertical between the thicker parts of the reticle.......different designations I suppose there was a number 2 & number 3 & maybe others too.

    The link shows which numbers mean what, when you talk about the German numbered reticles (Absehen).
    For many years the No1 (as you might expect) was the most popular scope reticle in Germany. It's only very recently that other types of reticle have become popular in German scopes for their domestic market.
    The South of England has 2 good things, the M1 and the A1. Both will take you to Yorkshire.
