I looked at Springfield Sporters and Numrich, but neither location lists the earlier windage adjustable rear sight. Does anyone know where I could locate one? Thanks.
Matching numbers......dream on)) If the Apex lead is correct buy them all up before someone else does & can turn the screw. If not eMail me when I get back Mike)
I am trying to understand the value of these windage adjustable sights from a collector's point of view. All of my No. 1's do not have windage adjustable sights but the sights they have are numbered correctly to the rest of the gun.
So, why would I want to replace them with a sight that is not original to the gun?
When were they start usings and stop usings the windage adjustable sights? My No. 1's cover from 1913-1943. What is the history behind these sights??
WW1 SMLE mark III*s went through several "lives". First, as they were first built and after WW1 they went through a major refurb in the early 1920s. The cut-offs were installed if the receiver had a slot, as were windage back sights.So it is possible for a BSA 1918 SMLE Mk. III* with no cut off slot to have a windage adjustable sight?
