I think I did just enough of a restoration without overdoing it. To me it matches the rifle perfectly!

Shamu have you set it up using the laser pointer? If you line up the original sights and the dioptre; you should be close to where you need to be.
One thing I did when fitting the No9 to my rifle; was flipping the rear sight notch upside down.(Non windage type). When shooting at 200 metres it is visible and a distraction.
I filed off the ridge from the underside of sight notch as well to give a clear sight picture. If I need to use the standard sight, I just need to flip it back over.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I did something similar, but I got a spare rear sight leaf & ground away the flat vertical portion. If I want to swap back I just return the original.
I did use the original open sight & double-checked it by bore sighting, but I didn't use a laser.

I have a slightly different version of that sight, with some slightly odd markings, I've asked about this in a couple of places, and I'd love to hear the opinion of the fine folks here. What do you think of this one - marked Alf'd Parker, 13 Cecil Street B'ingham, nothing else. It's fitted with a 6 hole BSA rotary aperture.

That's very nice. I would think it's an earlier version than the one Shamu has  or the No9 I have.

Yes thats a slightly earlier version folded down for storage, the pic is rotated 90 degrees. They were made by both BSA & Parkers of Parker-Hale fame.
The model & maker should be marked on it somewhere usually the flat below the sight arm.
Mine is a "9G" with the longer windage arm, the earlier versions were for either the Long Lee or the Martini action. That one has an SMLE mount bracket though.
