Walther sight questions



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a heavy Sportmodell V with a grooved barrel sight rail that has the long sight, the sight has to be loosened and moved to the rear of the grooves then lifted for removal at the notches milled there.

I also have a Meisterbuchse that has the short sight that is loosened and lifted off at any point along the rail. "But" this rifle also has the notches cut in the rail to fit a long sight. So I wonder if the rifle originally came with a long sight .

My questions would be , do all the grooved barrel Walthers have the notches or were they exclusive to the long sight rifles. Does anyone have one without the notches?

I'll post some better (hopefully) close-ups of that sight along with an Es350b sight and a GECO model 28 sight. All look similar but different in some details. I wonder if they came from a common manufacturer.

The long and short sight terms came from a collector I ran across in Montana many years ago.
Since then I have heard the terms describing ERMA sights.

The Walther sight has no numbers.

Thanks for the photos and that's a nice rifle. It may be all the grooved barrel Walthers has these notches for use with a long sight if the buyer wanted one.

here should be some photos of the Walther, Geco 26 and Mauser es350b sights. I seem incapable of taking decent photos, but there are differences in the profiles, attaching system of the sights, the rear sight plates, length, how the sight leaf attaches to the base with several more. The Walther sight has the rotatating disc to change the sight notch.
