Shamu, two questions. How many screw hole the L bracket to your black powder rifle? Do these Parker Hale sites flip up and down, or are they fixed in an upright position? Thanks!

The base plate has 5 screws, I only used 2 of them.
The silver-colored, circular thing at the bottom right is the piston for the spring holding the sight UP or FOLDED.
The sight folds down forwards just like it does on an Enfield.
Viewed from below with sight elevator folded down.


There is a spring (a stiff one) that you need to get (its not included) that provides the "click stops" for horizontal or vertical positioning of the elevator(Just like a standard singer sight). Yes it folds down when not needed but mine had no "battle sight" so I set it up so that the factory sight would work for close fast shots. Co-Witnessing while leaving room was the toughest part of this. I had to both co-witness @ 50 yds with the existing sight but have the elevator fold out of the way forwards to use the open sights for close up. Measure many times, cut once (shy) & go from there.

Shamu. I just got word from Sarco. They can ship that sight to Canada. I did a little on-line detective work. I punched in "Model 82 Cooey peep site". God pictures of the original. Seems pretty rudimentary. Thin flat bar bent at 90 deg. A slotted hole on the bottom to adjust for windage (one screw affixes it to the rifle.) Then a vertical slot for elevation. The apature disc affixed to a threaded "bolt" and a nut to holds in place on the other side. Looks like this apature "bolt" requires drilling thru. Any idea what the apature size would be? Small, I suspect because it's pretty close to the eye.

the diameters of the P-H 6 aperture are:
.03"
.04"
.05"
.06"
.07"
&
.0S (I have no idea what that is!) WackoSick
I can't imagine the Cooey would be much different. FWIW I usually end up using the .04 or .05" most of the time

Well, just received my new .22 Cooey. Very, very pleased! Hardware is in vg shape and original, except he had sandblasted and "clear coated" the butt plate, sling swivels and barrel bands. Easy fix. The stock is amazing! No dings or gouges! But, he has applied several several coats of what I think is Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil. I've used this before and cut the high gloss  down to a nice matte using the finest scotch brite. I did a test patch  and  believe  restore it to look almost handrubbed. If not, my plan was to stripand refinish with the proper.

Honks,
Did you find a source for the M82 peep sight?
 
Very pleased your rifle is in good shape!

You can also try hessian, or burlap, the sacking fabric for a less drastic eggshe!! finish.

Pukka. No luck yet but I googled them and got some real nice close-ups. Look pretty simple, other than locating the apeture disc. My rifle has a small square block that is screwed (1 screw) to where the peep is mounted. Looks like remove this and use those threads to mount the peep. It's just light flat bar with a 90 deg bend. The bottom of the peep I'll slot a hole for windage. The top will have a longer machined slot for elevation. I could just buy a small apature from Skinners, but I quite haven't figured out to move that up/down. Winter Project!

Englishman. Don't know what I was thinking. Just came from the workbench. Took the rifle apart. Wood ready to strip tomorrow and linseed oil to follow.

Thanks for the "kick in the pants" Englishman! I had a moment of laziness. Furniture is stripped, polished and tack ragged. First coat of linseed on. It looks awesome! Seeing grain on the wood I wouldn't have if I copped out! My bad!
