I have an Adams Mark lll, ser #77-- that has been in the family for more than 40 years. Does anyone have any info as to whether this could have been a military weapon. it's pretty cool.

I believe that the mark 3 was contracted by the British army as well as being sold on the civilian market. But as to how many for how long we will have to wait for smarter folk than me to answer.
