I'm taking a flyer here!

I was looking at a  really sweet BSA No9 sight on E-Pay, but the whole thing went wobbly! Prices skyrocketed & one of the bidders driving them up was the seller! (I think maybe the other one was a shill.) Then the ending time for the auction started varying between 8PM & 11PM so I bailed, just as well I did someone paid through the nose for it!

Anyway I have located a Different sight, a (Parker No9, all the same Parker made BSA's sights for them) that while mechanically fine, needs a little help in the cosmetics dept. I just have to sort the details as it comes as a sight, a one hole eyepiece (no problem I can horse trade for that.)

Between us we need to make sure I have the 2 sets of mounting hardware, one for the sight body to the mount, the other for the mount to the SMLE.
Confused
GOT IT!
YESSSSS!
Clap

Trying to find the pics I was sent, but Yahoo mail is being a pain.
Its coming with the 3 screws on the side with the naggered heads replaced
the one on the back replaced
the safety spring, thumbscrew, with its mounting screw, for mounting it on the plate
& a set of the longer bolts to fit the mount to my SMLE!

I'll do a cosmetic cleanup, strip  (& a CLA as we used to say)!
