    Question Australian Lightened No1 Mk3 Rear Peep Sight

    Is anyone aware of a drawing or sketch of the rear peep sight charger bridge modification and the sight itself used on the Australianicon Lightened No1 Mk3? My past life was as an aero Design Engineer, Machinist and in my retirement I am a gunsmith, that being said I believe there are sufficient pictures available for me to be able to duplicate the sight in my CAD program and then build it, BUT if I do not have to reverse engineer it I would prefer that.

    I find that bolt number interesting. Isn't that a little high for a a short and lightened?

    XP158 is listed as being a No6Mk1 type.

    What is the origin of that photo?

    The SMLE was first shortened in that manner in WWI by certain Canadianicon battalions. They were found particularly useful for bayonet work inside trenches; the bayonets were not shortened however.

    Nowadays we'd just have a rotating dial which would be a good deal stronger and simpler.

    The S & L has the wrong bolt in it. The serial number on the action is two digits.

    I can give you any amount of photo's you want but I am not willing to disassemble it.
    Just PM me if you want.
    Mine is from the first batch of 20.
    I also have the original factory bayonet for it as well.

    Would love to see a couple of pics Warren...here... Last one I saw that was good was in Milarm back in 1981 when they were still upstairs in that old house in Edmonton. Could have had it for $800 CDN then...
    Regards, Jim

    Warren,

    Thank you for the offer! Yes additional pictures would be nice. Hi res pictures as large as possible that match the views of a dimensioned machinist drawing would be fantastic. Assuming the receiver it is mounted on is a standard no1 mk3 most dimensions can be extrapolated.
