Response to Making some Pattern Rear Sights

[I just corrected a name in your post above, sorry.]

If enough people come forward with firm orders for a remanufactured Falke rearsight/diopter it would surely be worth someone's while to make a batch?

Unfortunately both of the talented machinists who have already re-made a rearsight, Grant Stace in New Zealand and the retired British contact of a friend to this forum, Andy (login Winterlake), don't seem keen to repeat the challenge. See pic below of Andy's superb reproduction sight next to the original.

An ongoing remanufacturing attempt is being made by another Falke forum regular, Abe (abewilson), a retired non-technical person who has taken the extraordinary step of joining a evening class in engineering to learn the machining skills to make a repro diopter sight for his beloved Falke 90. Time will tell if he succeeds, although he certainly doesn't want for grit and determination!
