Spare Square Glass for MK II  Gunsight (pg2 Gun)

Finally after many years I have managed to have these new Gunsight glass made from the Square type MK and projector Gunsight's made. Although you would think these were easier to produce than the oval types they are not. The only way to produce these in modern times is with a CNC machine. For most machine's they are much to small to be produced and finally I have now found a specialist to make them. This is the prototype sent to me for approval. The corners on the production models will be slightly rounder as per original. The only thing we cannot produce so far are the bevelled edges on the top and bottom but this is hard to spot. I have test fitted this to a Gunsight and they fit and work perfectly. Finally all those  Gunsight's with cracked glass can now be made repaired.

The Hawker Hunter is a transonic British jet aircraft developed in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

 The single-seat Hunter entered service as a manoeuvrable fighter aircraft, and later operated in fighter-bomber and reconnaissance roles in numerous conflicts. Two-seat variants remained in use for training and secondary roles with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and Royal Navy until the early 1990s.

The Hunter was also widely exported, serving with 21 other air forces. Sixty years after its original introduction it was still in active service

B25 Gunsight (pg2 Gun)

Here we have a Type N-6A Gunsight as used in the B25 Bomber

Early N-6s were fitted with a 29.7 mil ring reticule later replaced by a more standard 70 mil ring reticule.

The N-6 was most widely used in Martin and Bendix upper turrets, B-24 turrets (nose and tail), B-17 chin turrets and on the remote control sighting station of the P-61 night fighter. Adapter rings were also available for fitment of either A-1 or A-2 tilting heads for use as a fixed gunnery gunsight on attack and light bomber planes, but if these combinations were ever used operationally is unclear.

N-6 was also field modified to be used as a fixed gunsight on B-25 in the PTO. One of the most famous being “PAPPY’S FOLLY”, the very own B-25 of Col. Paul “Pappy” Gunn

French WW1 Gun sight  (pg2 Gun)

I think I have seen it all then a piece like this comes along, could this be the first attempt to make a reflector gun sight?. The info I got from the seller is under. If anyone can identify the aircraft this was used in a 10% discount on any part on the site will be their's.

This is a small original reflector gun sight. It is made from blackened brass and has a bowed glass with Red Cross hairs. It folds flat and when the glass is lifted a spring-loaded sight flips up. Likewise it has a spring-loaded tray with a mirror. The base has a slot for affixing. The only marking are BTF. S.GDG. AG. It is a heavy quality piece and came from an RAFA Club that closed down. All pieces were donated by members. I believe it is a WW1 Aviation piece

Following Further Research BTF S.SGDC is a French term. Brevete Sans Guarantee Du Gouvernement. This Literally translates as Patented without Guarantee by the Government

RAF Mustang Gun sight (pg2  Gun)

This gun sight was used in the P51 Mustang. What makes this particular gun sight rare is the fact it was produced for use in the Mustangs supplied to the RAF. We can tell this by the Air ministry label with the Kings crown.

The round glass at the top is broken and the Internals

The RAF loved the early Mustangs and it was very much missed when the production line closed in favour of the Merlin engined B’s and C’s. As a low level fighter the P51A had few equals in speed and range, even if its agility was exceeded by the low altitude cropped wing Spitfire Mk V’s. Mustangs saw action all over Western Europe including Dieppe flying in ones and twos at ranges Spitfire’s could only dream about in their armed versions. Mustangs had the standard day scheme of green/brown uppers and sky undersides later replaced by the green/Ocean Grey/Medium Sea Grey scheme. Markings were a standard mix of B roundels on the upper wings and C and C1’s on the under sides of the wings and fuselage sides (A’s on the green/Dark Earth versions). The RAF also had some of the 20mm cannon armed aircraft designated 1a’s. The last Mustang 1/ll squadron kept their aircraft until 1945. All others having been replaced by other types or Merlin Mustang versions
