I happened to catch File on Four on Radio 4 the other day as I was driving home. It concerned a former marine who has been jailed for 2 1/2 years for exporting 100 Schmidt & Bender PM II's to Dubai, though with Iran as the final destination.
It was an interesting program.

Or listen to a replay of File on Four here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/fileon4
The BIS advice is interesting, in that it states: "They were Schmidt and Bender 3-12x50 PM II LP scopes, which are high-specification precision optical scopes designed for use with sniper rifles and used worldwide by military snipers".
Best they don't look at the Classifieds section......
