What was I thinking?

I decided to sell my BSA International MKIII. Dug it out of the back of the safe, got reacquainted, then I had to shoot it out back.
Browsed through some of the history and all again so I could intelligently talk about it.
Went and shot it some more.
Then I shot it again today.
What was I thinking? This is magnificent!

You made a wise decision , they are getting scarce & finding a good one is difficult.

I looked but couldnt find it anywhere, but it sticks in my memory (such as it is, now) that only about 1200 of the Int.MkIIIs were made.
Anyone able to verify or correct that?
I used to be able to shoot deer flies pretty regularly at 50yd off the bench on my back deck with it and a 20X AO scope. A nice morning diversion before 10am when the winds tended to start. Been some years since that and my glaucoma has taken a toll. I fear I can no longer shoot it to it's potential.
