Try richard Storke at Devizes Gunsmith's. He has a lot of special Enfield stuff. The website is good.
However they are always too busy to answer the phone. So e-mail and expect to wait for a reply. Took me a couple of e-mails to buy a sight base from them; but as they were the only place I found one, had to insist a bit before getting a reply. Having said that; once I got a reply the deal was done and I'm happy with the transaction.
But you know how it is; when you find a piece of rocking horse sh*t for sale you don't want anyone else to get there first!Wink

The windage adjustment is nice, but its vertically offset by (IIRC 20 minutes) so the scale wont be correct.
The P-H sights have become collectable, which is why the prices are so high.

Absolutely, but the scale on a No9 is different anyway.

It's true that prices seem high; but you will not lose money on a AG Parker or Parker Hale sight. especially when it fit's a Lee Enfield!

Yup.
I have one of those "sniper" windage adjustable sights for the No4 (as long as you don't mind drilling & reaming the mount), It has the range indexes for .303 on the back, (blued to make them less visible). .22 RF on the left side (blue removed to make it more visible) & then, as I want using it on a L-E anyway, a third set for .50 PRB in my Hawken Carbine, on the right side.Confused
