Complete Backsight for the Enfield/BSA #2 MK4/1 .22 caliber trainer rifle, in *Excellent* condition.
We ran across this part some time ago and have shared the picture on several firearms boards in an attempt to identify what it fits.
Well, the MYSTERY has been solved!
While not a common rifle here in the USA the version of #2 MK4/1 rifle that this complete backsight fits was used as a training rifle by the Armies of the British Commonwealth, even after they gained independance.
The back end of the receiver of the #1 MKIII rifle is modified to accept this sight during the conversion from .303 British to .22 Caliber.
With the standard barrel mounted rear sight removed the installation of this receiver mounted rear sight makes the #2 MK4/1 rifle aim like the later #4 MK1 Lee-Enfield.
Please note that this is the complete rear sight.
