Hello fellow Lee Enfielditis sufferers


I won a Mues sight on the Bay of Evil last week, not knowing much about this particular sight.
My question do I need a plate or does the Mues sight mount up on the safety I away at work for a few weeks so it should be waiting for me when I get home :woohoo:

There was only a brief description and no indication as to is condition I will be interested to see what $55 brought me


When I get to look at it I will post some photos of my modest collection of aperture sights for the Lee Enfield rifles

Mues did put out his own mount plate, original patent was 1928 and was specifically for the range of folders he manufactured.
Your sight was patented in 1936 and was a knee jerk reaction to his loss of a courtcase with William Dunn, the designer of the Central sight.
Depending on what type of mating surface it requires, if original, any of the BSA, Parker, Government or early Central Brackets will surfice, however, if it has the later grooved face, you will need a Late Central plate.


The Climax depicted has both the original and Central surfaces.
