View Full Version : WTS #4T base pads

These were take offs I bought 20 years ago. I believe they came from PARGON when India surplussed out several hundred damaged scopes and brackets. These are not the Indian made copies but replacement parts from shop stores used by armorers to maintain and later to build rifles when England and India split the sheets.

$70 per set shipped.

PM with questions.

These are raw pads not drilled. the only fitted set i had are sold and gone. I bought these about 20 years ago when PARAGON was selling parts sets for the Indian L1A1 SLR STEN and other parts for Enfields. they had tonnes of the stuff. It was amazing as they had ten tables just covered with boxes you had to dig through. I cleaned the cosmoline off this set today. I do not have a set of raw H&H pads and if I did they would not be going anyplace but a bank vault.. LOL The rear, elevation, pad would be the one needing fitting the front looks identical but for the holes and the spigot in threaded for the thumb screw. Recall it is the receiver at the front that is worked not the pad.

These would be for a puca or build rifle today because of the screw holes. The rear pad should be soldered then drilled and screwed for elevation. The front spigot and bracket are then shaped for final windage. I had to work a few of those Asian copy brackets as much as .040" in depth to get them to fit original rifles for two guys. I would not get involved unless you know what your about here. This is not just a bolt on job as we know.

Here is another view laid on my spare '45 receiver.

Plus what bracket will be used.

I'm not trying to chase you off but if you haven't read Peter Laidler or his musings on building a copy I don't think this is a garage shop job honestly.
