    BSA Martini - International Mark 1

    I just acquired a rather nice BSA Martini - International Mark 1. Major flaws with the International Mark 1, someone inletted a sling swivel on the butt stock which was later removed and patched. The rifle lacks sights. I installed a target globe front sight that I had laying around which fits but may be too low. I improvised a rear sight by making an aluminum bracket and attaching an old Pacific micrometer aperture. I want to put better sights on the BSA. Parker Hale sights appear rare and too pricey. I am investigating using more available Redfield models. I would appreciate suggestions, advice, and hints on what has worked for others.

    I have a few, but why bother with improvised sights. the sigh you need is the Parker Hale PH25, often seen on eBay U.K.

    I have a number of smaller Martini's and a Mark II International.
    Wow, your collection is impressive. Can we have more detailed pictures, can you give us some info on the variations?
