An interesting new page covering the discovery of a rare example of this aperture sight has appeared on the excellent riflemen.org website. This patent application dates to 1927 and was approved in 1928. It looks like a worthy competitor for the PH 5A but has anyone ever seen one?

Fantastic , thanks for sharing that.
On a side note, I picked up some bits the other day and have no idea who made this or the other bits, hopefully you might know, cheers

That's it Muffett - where was that image posted and when? If it is off ePay within the last 4 months then there is still only one I have ever seen! The small smudge of patina under the piled rifles in your photo exactly matches mine.

Also to Chrometank, I can't recognise any parts in your photos, but then again I don't have more than one or two of the many sporting type aperture sights used on Enfields

Chrometank, the top pic. is an Index sight, you have one for intermediate calibres.....25cal size.
The one in my collection is for Rimfires, the difference is the elevation arm length.
The other bits look familiar, but elude me at the moment.
