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.

Your better off selling a PH QL on ebay some of them depending on model are worth half the price of a rifle , same as the sights and woodwork , sell the peices keep the action and barrel and you have made your money .

The proper rear sight for the BSA is a Parker Hale PH25 "B","C", or "E". All fit, the letters are slight sight modifications. They are not cheap, about $175 US. This is the type of mount on the left side it needs. That is my scoped MKIII.

Just by chance I came across a 25B, minus the screw in aperture for $75 + $13 postage; so I jumped at it and did the deal, I've got a few apertures that should fit, if not then a bit of lathe work will soon have one turned up. Will be posted next Tuesday, so may have it by Friday with any luck.

Should be OK as I took it direct from my In Box, however I've moved it into Photobucket so it now has a different URL.
I realize that you've got to be careful, as the foreman said to the condom tester.

The sight was posted in Adelaide, South Australia, on Tuesday and arrived Friday as hoped, over 1,800 km; not only that but the seller refunded $6.50 as the postage wasn't as much as expected, all up $81.00.

It is in tip-top mechanical condition although the blue is a bit faded, can't have everything :D :D

The 6 hole aperture is from my other Martini Target and bears the 1909 Patent date.; screwed in perfectly.

Tryout Sunday.
