Remember this bad boy?

Yup, the “Windage adjustable Lee Enfield No4 Rear sight”**


Well we all know it has to have the receiver modified, so we don't like it, & everywhere I trip over it its referred to as “Not for a Lee Enfield at all but for a non Lee Enfield .22 trainer.” & that's also true, It was a Mauser-actioned P-H IIIRC when it was used with that flat base.

BUT, guess what I accidentally discovered?

This!

Could it be? is it the same sight on a .22 Lee-Enfield trainer?


Wow is that a Lee Enfield No4 Mk1* fitted with the same sight, but minus the adapter base?

Almost, but not quite, it indeed a Lee Enfield, & its also a .22 trainer!


While rummaging through some old Canadian manuals I found a set for the “Rifle, .22 Caliber, LEE ENFIELD, C no7 Mk1” & guess what its shown with & has descriptions for that same sight!


So everybody was a bit right & a bit wrong!

Original source:

National Defense, Canada,

C71, 1008-000/MD000

NSN 1005-21-109-2624


Its also referred to in the companion leaflets on use, maintenance, operation & parts.

are you fixin to mount that to one ? i did avoid it because of the modifications that were permanent if i recall correctly , 


i would like one of those on my Cno7 i think , although it shoots quite well as is , it is very similar to what is on it save the windage adjustment

Yes you have to ream the I.D. of the sight pivot pin mounts & drill a detent for the ball bearing clock-stop. Might yours already be modified but sleeved back or something?

I have mounted it, but not on a Lee Enfield!Shocked With that flat screw on base it was just screaming for a new home so it was adopted. For SARCO's price it was an unbeatable way to add an affordable peep sight to my inexpensive B/P, a .50 Hawken carbine with a 24" BBl.
