    Other prewar air rifles with aperture sights

    Have enjoyed collecting two prewar BSA Lights with BSA folding 12b aperture sights. I never really thought about it but I can find no other spring prewar rifle with a aperture? In America we had the Crosman rifles but not in the same class as spring guns from Europe.

    The Webley Service Rifle MkI and MKII spring to mind. Not sure of any others?

    Only ever seen one MkI fitted with an aperture sight and that was an aftermarket Parker Hale unit.

    EDIT. Forgot. Also bear in mind that the Webley MkII sported an aperture sight as standard but with the BSAs it was an optional extra.

    Some other aperture sights besides the no. 12 were factory options for the pre-war BSA's - including an adjustable-aperture eyepiece.

    And, some pretty cool front sights to go with them.
