    was it a thumbhole ultra carbine ? All I can imageine, as even the .177 FTs are not that rare... Still seems insane though...

    Makes more sense; I had one back in the day... would have been worth holding onto as an investment !

    I'm no collector, but some interesting results.

    The SLR did make a fantastic price. Lovely rifle.
    The Stirling was a fantastic example being walnut. If you are going to have an example of a "poor" rifle then what an example to have.
    Fab rifles did seem to make great prices.
    The walnut concept BSA 2000 didn't sell. I wonder how high the reserve was, and how high the bidding went? The model cannot be considered a production model, but still....

    Good looking rifles in great condition will aways hold a premium price. I suspect the Scottish effect will knock down less desirable rifle prices. There are a lot in the closed bid sale. I suspect a load more in future sales. I suspect some of the start prices are too high.

    I see that the BSA Spanner and pellet probe made £80. Maybe others spotted the strange "shoulders" on the face of the spanner, which I personally have not seen on other examples...?

    Also there was only one photograph of one side. Surely if you wanted an item to achieve top dollar, you might have wanted to post an image of each side !

    We had a look at that VS2000, we have two here on the "shelf" so to speak. The magazine that was in it was not one of the original magazines according the the all knowledgable boss.
