    I know it's a sovereign of some sort, not really an expert on them but it's a UK cocker pretty much. Not sure what version (2 maybe :/)

    I would need larger pics, from the looks it is a Sov I, if you remove the frame the serial number will be hand scribe, if it is stamp it is not rare, color is rare, for some reason arrow runs mostly, Blue, Black and Red, while the inferno and family have many different colors.

    Yeah, I took it on my iPhone late last Friday. We found it in the warehouse where we keep all out Sterling pump stock. I've brought my Canon EOS DSLR in today so I'll get some more pics up. It's a left-hand feed Sovereign 1, in green. Needs to go to a loving home ;-)

    Went to take some more photos, but came across this beauty instead...
    Eclipse Sovereign in green splash.

    Two more pictures on the Sovereign Picture thread.

    That is rare for 2 reason the color and if you look at the back, it has the custom milling gills, you are missing the match LPR

    Love those Eclipse splashes! Great pic of the Sovereign 1 too. I haven't seen one of those in ages.

    I always thought this style Sovereign was actually milled by BBT?

    Restored!

    Well, after several days, we restored the green Eclipse Sovereign. Steve did a great job keeping as many of the original parts as possible. We've added a new WGP vertical regulator and bolt pin. The vertical adapter had to be replaced as it was leaking and we have no idea where the matching splash LPR has gone to. They were often swapped out as an upgrade so we went with the silver one that was on this marker and it works fine. We had to tidy up some work on the valve body and fix a leak on an elbow, but she's good to go. We shot some HD footage this morning alongside the Prestige and will put some up, somewhere, once the graphics guy has fiinished with the files.
