Another Original and Rare A. J. Parker, stamped ‘Model T Z K/68’, Micro Adjustable Target sight and made to fit a Mauser 98 action and similar. This site actually reaches further back from the action than a standard model and also features a longer windage arm (stamped 106). With ½ MOA Elevation adjustments per click scales as well as ‘battle’ ranges from 200 to 1200 this appears to be graduated to suit .7.92 (German military) cartridges so may well equate to meters too. The scales do NOT match up (at approx. 9.5mm overall) to those shown on similar Lee Enfield / .303 calibre (British military) sights which measure up to approx. 11.25mm. As such all I can assume is they are done to match the different trajectories between the calibres etc. Any further correct information welcomed!
GENERAL NOTES TO BEAR IN MIND PLEASE:
These and other small items of equipment detailed can range from easy to just about impossible to find.
BEFORE you fall over from the ‘shock’ PLEASE bear in mind the time it takes to DO THE FOLLOWING: Source. Clean. Possibly repair or replace parts. Prepare. Label. Photograph. Down load. Cut. Crop and make good images. Along with everything else involved to actually detail them here for sale.
Generally go nowhere even close to covering this time, effort and expense. (The main reason you will see very few, if any, other dealers bothering with things like this).
I often say there are far too many places selling guns and not enough GUN SHOPS. I stand by that statement. Listing things like this should convey I do this for the love of the sport and to HELP customers. I DO also expect to see a small return for the effort.
Prices not only reflect the condition of each item, good or not so good (in the odd case). They also reflect the rarity and WORK involved. I consider them all excellent value for what they are. If you do not then please don’t waste either of our time.
All I ask is that you bear these few factors in mind before asking about ‘best prices’ or discounts etc.
My ‘BEST’ prices would be PLUS an additional £200 so think before you ask!
Also please note that when I detail a measurement they are as close I can reasonably tell. Dovetails are measured at their WIDEST point on the base.
Last point to make is that it actually makes a lot more sense to invest in QUALITY scope mounts. If you have spent a small fortune on a scope you should it performs to its greatest potential. At the same time causing no damage. Poor performance and awful marks on tubes from nasty, cheap, ill-fitting mounts ALWAYS makes me ‘smile’. In reality actually ‘cry’ at the stupidity. People with scopes of well in excess of £1000 set into £19.99 TRASH!
My advice?…… DO NOT penny pinch on your mounts.
