These are not (yet) the collector's items that the original .310 have already become, so - no problem there. I do presume that will reblue those that are in poor external condition to start with, which it no sin in my book. After all, you're going to buy a rifle for (accurate) shooting, no? Of course, a good-looking rifle with original finish would be preferable in my book, but...
Suggest you give him a call if you want a MK V - keeping a website updated is time-consuming business...
I do love my Mk V - it sports a Weaver T36 scope and a Time Precision Tuner now, and shoots as it looks.

Re: Tuner on a MkIII

My personal preference is to use the unalterd freefloated barrel arrangement from BSA and spend my cash on topgrade Match ammo and MORE/Better WINDFLAGS:cool: :D

Ziplok, same for me - but add the tuner and omit the freefloated barrel thing (Mk V, you know). A tuner will allow you to tune your barrel to a lot of ammunition - it works on barrel vibration. Mind you, it won't allow you to shoot cheap ammo with matchgrade precision. But sometimes some types of consistent match ammo just won't shoot in your rifle, and with a tuner you can get it to perform. Bottom line: It allows you to tune the rifle to the ammo, instead of searching for the best type/lot of ammo, and start all over when you finished your supply...
It basically is a barrel weight you screw in or out, allowing you to change barrel swing/vibration. But, as I said before, you still need consistent ammo (MV) in order to have accuracy
