    Rear sight for mk1 bsa scorpion pistol wanted

    As pre title looking for a BSA rear sight to suit a mk1 scorpion pistol.
    Its a recent acquisition that had the usual buffer jam and was missing 99% of the rear sight.
    Added anew buffer, piston o-ring and a new breech seal is on the way.
    Its an average condition looking piece so not looking to spend a fortune if it can be avoided.
    Fingers crossed someone has a spare for tuppence plus post 8-)

    Rear sight for mk1 bsa scorpion pistol wanted

    Have you got any parts of the sight I think I may have the main body and elevation screw but you would need the windgauge block and windgauge screw These are available from John Knibbs
    but are quite expensive 8.50 each https://www.airgunspares.com/162217b...block12mm.html or for a complete sight https://www.airgunspares.com/catalog...category/1048/

    The only bit of the rear sight still attached was the fixing screw and a little bit of the main body.
    Really needs the whole thing sadly

    Lets see if any other bits turn up 8-)
    Might be able to assemble one from a few people

    I doubt the pistol is worth the price of a brand new unit tbh

    The whole unit is available https://www.airgunspares.com/catalog...category/1048/

    The price is due to us having to manufacture the block and parts, they are off the original moulds that BSA used to use (had them refurbished at great expense), we then have to machine them and build them by hand

    you will be pleased to know that the effort is appreciated and I've ordered one :-)
    probably doubled the value of the pistol but they will be 'right' as far as is possible
