BSA Meteor - broken rear sight

    Recommended Posts

    Can anyone help or advise me?

     

    A friend dragged his old (boyhood!) Meteor out into the daylight at the weekend, only to find that the rear sight has suffered damage whilst in storage - it's now cracked through where the roll-pin secures it to the lug on the top of the breech.

     

    It's the plastic adjustable-for-elevation-and-windage type, and a cursory glance at the T W Chambers site indicates that replacements are no longer available.

     

    I've tried to glue it using two-pack stuff similar to Araldite, but it won't hold - perhaps the glue's not compatible with the type of plastic.

     

    Does anyone have any suggestions before we start trawling Ebay, etc, for a second-hand replacement?

    Thanks again. Will have a look at J Knibbs later, once I've persuaded my pup to stop play-fighting her mother and WRECKING THE HOUSE! Why has she so much ENERGY????
