Unknown sights, any ideas?

Recommended Posts

Had these 2 for a while, not sure what they are from and how much is missing from them so any help would be appreciated.

 

Might sell

The second one is the rear end of an anti-tank gunsight (possibly for the 25 pounder), made by Ross Ltd (of binocular fame), I reckon.

 

Further thought: it's the eyepiece (with the graticule adjustment knobs stripped out), and the erector lens. The missing part is the outer sleeve that has the objective lens fitted to it and a long key to locate the sight in its mounting on the gun.

 

Best,

Chris
