    parker hale 16 aperture sight

    hi all ,sorry i know this is an old chestnut,a friend showed me a parker hale 16[yes just 16 no letter after it] aperture rear sight last night.i know from doing a search on here that the one fitted to the webley mk3 supertarget is the ph16m.my friends sight looks very simular to a ph16m[found a photo when i did the search] but there must be a difference .anyone know what it is?any info would be much appreciated..thanks..greasemonkey

    Hi Greasemonkey,

    The PH16 was intended to fit a number of different rifles and each variation was identified by a letter, as you have eluded. I once looked at a PH16 alongside a Mark 3 and at a rough glance, there was not enough windage adjustment laterally if the sight was fitted to a Mark 3.

    hi,thanks to all who replied to the thread,all info much appreciated.i will try and borrow this sight and offer it up to my classic british springer collection and see what it could fit out of interest,as you say john many guns could be fitted with theses sights.i found a BSA sportsman five rimfire with a ph16 fitted on the internet.one of these little beeezers was my first ever rimfire back in 1973.happy days..cheers all..greasemonkey

    i've a few Mk3 supertargets, and they have 17b model sights...i've not personally seen a 16m on one before, so I think they are a little less common

    hi all,just an update on the ph16 sight.i borrowed it from my friend,and tried it against some of my guns.john was correct, it has insufficient adjustment to be used on a webley mk3,also bsa light pattern,bsa breakdown pattern ,bsa standard.would suit a small diameter tube like say a bolt action rimfire,,,,cheers..greasemonkey
