    Not used for the No.4T scoped rifle to the best of my knowledge.

    Looks like the standard pattern to me. Some do have a pouch on the side though.

    Cheers, Ade.

    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling

    Hi John, yes, No.4T's were kept in wooden boxes.

    Cheers, Ade.
