    Walter foresight tunnel wanted

    As above, the thread has stripped on my LG for sight tunnel so looking for a replacement tunnel that will fit, anything out there?

    They are a bit "rocking horse excrement" second hand, Walther front dovetail is different to all else, you can get new versions such as Centra in Walther size but not really looking right on a classic.
    We are old school and always order the traditional type that takes metal elements on our new rifles (all Walthers) and they will supply if you ask. Walther do list the 18 mm old style ones, just look on their website in Zubhor, (parts), I order through MEC or collect when I'm over there.

    Best of Luck

    Nigel,

    Have you considered a sympathetic repair ; drill out the stripped hole, use a longer screw and a nut on the end ?

    I am sure it can be done tastefully and in keeping.

    Have fun & a good weekend

    Best regards

    Thanks for the replys, it's the thread in the tunnel that's gone, where the insert holder screws in so not a simple fix, I've managed to do a temporary repair that should hold until one turns up, I would like to keep it original looking and although have considered a centra sight feel it will look to modern, that said if it's that or not using the rifle I can live with it

    Thanks again

    Nigel,

    Ahh....

    I have fitted Centra Score tunnels to my Weihrauch HW99S & HW95 Super Match, using 1 mm steel shims (one each side) to take out the slack in the ca. 8.5 - 9mm HW dovetails, and it has out worked very well indeed

    Have fun

    Best regards

    Russ

    As I said they are available new, we use them on all our modern Walthers (old school!) they are "Kornhalter M18 article number 2.4827" and 49 Euro's. I don't have one spare (just replaced the Centra one on my LG400 with one), Walther will not supply direct but I can give you a contact German company who will if you want one.

    Fitted a Gehman 523 with a steel pin to fit, actually went for a 22mm tunnel and high end glass element and have to say the sight picture is superb and with the 523 being a basic black tunnel it looks ok, ok not as vintage looking as the original but I can live with that considering how much nicer it is to shoot and at the end of the day that's why I own it
