    It could have/might easily have had one fitted. Either at the factory - incoming suppliers stocks permitting. Or in service. A defective Mk2 backsight could easily be replaced with a Mk1 type if one were on the shelf.

    I have the identical sight with his name hand stamped on it.
    Wasn't he the chap who came up with the aperture sight mounting bridge / charger guide for the Ross MkII or so they say? I believe he was a Cowichan; best known for their sweaters!

    I used to have one of his sights, photos attached.

    I see Muffet.2008 has one as well. They seem to have traveled widely, surprisingly enough, as they're no silk purse.

    The Parker Hale 8/53, plate 55, those ever show up here in the US?

    I like the looks of it but when folded down is the point blank aperture blocked by the threaded PH aperture?

    I see you've got an early Humphreys sight there, left drawer back center: https://www.milsurps.com/attachment....0&d=1400495572

    I found the arm of a better and later version recently. There are no patent records in Canadaicon I could find though, despite the patent claim on the sight.

    If anyone has a base I would appreciate seeing a few photos. I think Lyman may have inspired the toothed arm. (Sorry about the bad photos)

    garage sale find

    I picked this up at a garage sale today cause I thought it was cool. Was pretty hard to find out what it was but noticed a picture of it in the slide show.

    I can't find any info on them so anything you guys would be willing to share would be much appreciated.





    Thanks,
    Matt

    It's a sight cramp...for adjusting sights. You know that now right? It's for the #1 Mk3 and variants I think. We have it in the Knowledge Libraryicon too... Milsurps Knowledge Library - Fore Sight Adjusting Cramps (by Graeme Barber))

    Thanks Jim, I've listed it on ebay, I could only find out what it was and that it seemed hard to find.
