    Grat wire for No.32 Mk3

    Anybody know of an acceptable substitute for the grat wire in a No.32 Mk3 scope? Luckily the vertical post on my scope is present but unfortunately the grat wire is long gone.

    Hoping there is a replacement option out there.

    Thanks, Kiwi

    I know Peter in Englandicon and Warren in Canadaicon does work on them. PM them and ask if they have a spare piece.

    I don't recall of someone in Australiaicon or New Zealand that works on them, but I am half way around the world.

    Thanks, I've tried to PM to Warren (at suggestion of Dr Roger Payneicon) a week ago, but no response as yet, hence my post.
