BSA Martini 'International' Mk III.

Probably the most popular caliber firearm in most of the world. Many of us have more than one. They also are very collectible and still cheap to shoot.

BSA Martini 'International' Mk III.

Postby Aughnanure » Wed May 16, 2012 7:58 am

Can anyone tell me the price of a rear aperture sight for one of these, also the 10 shot holder that fits on the side of the action?

I've looked on Google but could find nothing.

Depends on the mark of sight, also are you selling or looking? I have looked around various sites when asked and to be honest it all depends on what the market will pay.
I have some bits if you are looking!

Eoin, there's a bloke on ebay who makes the ammunition holders and sells them. Price is around the $40-50 mark.

Also is the sight this one ?

If they're what you want I can put bids on if you haven't got an ebay account.

Thanks for that, mate.\, but the sight that I'm after fits on a dovetail rail on the left side of the body. I'm in the process of buying a Mk III 'International' but it doesn't have a rear sight.

Until i can get the correct sight I'll make an adapter and fit a Mues range sight that I was given a few years ago or maybe my spare Central.

It's now at home!!



the Central sight (mainly for No1 L-Es) and an adapter that I made from a bit of scrap aluminum.



another view of the sight and before I sprayed the adapter matt black



A shoot tomorrow at the Emmaville Range and I intend to slay 'em and if I don't I have a good excuse,



The bottle on the left is 'Eye drops' and the one on the right is an anti-fungul medicine for a fungal infection in my right big toe nail.

Now no one of any intelligence could possibly pick up the fungal stuff and put it in his right eye, I mean that's too stupid for words, right?

As I said above, I have an excuse if I don't shoot well :roll:

Anti-fungal is the way to go :D
Yesterday I shot 96.1; 100.1; 100.6 on the normal targets and 100 on the Fox head.

Not being one to boast, I merely remarked to some of my fellow shooters that getting 100s was rather boring.

Won't repeat the resulting remarks :bigsmile:

This was my most satisfying target, shot in practice after the shoot.



Aside from the flyer 9, this really shows the potential of the rifle.

The shot at 10-o-clock is actually cutting the line (only just :!: ) for the extra X.

It was a bit uncomfortable to shoot due to the high comb but as I don't want to alter the stock I'm raising the foresight by about 1/2 an inch. This should allow me to get up close to the aperture.
