    I might let them have the sight back at the right price, I recon it would be a few bob at today's prices.

    Dunno either Zephyr, but would like to.... i've got the identical sight in my garage! Picked it up in a scrapyard 15 years ago. Does yours just have the plain cross hairs, the same as mine?

    Ned, I have an update on the sight it is possible it is from a WW2 AA predictor, not sure what model but if you google it you will see what it was used for.
    Info given to me at another forum.
