I recently aquired a 1916 Spanish Mauser from my father. He had given the rifle to my exbrother-in-law who wanted to put a bayonet on it. I don't think he knew what he was doing because he said the bayonet would not fit with the front sight on the barrel so he beat it off to get the bayonet on it. needless to say when he and my sister got a divorce my father took the gun back and gave it to me. His original intentions for the gun was for hunting. I am thinking I might use it for the same purpose but for now I wish to restore the front sight on the gun but it is missing. Any ideas were I might be able to get my hands on another one?
Here is a picture of my situation.

Mauser front sights are soft-soldered on, generally with a set-screw to help. Try Numrich for a replacement (www.e-gunparts.com).

It looks like that website has got the sight on there i'm going to pick one up and try it out. Thanks for the help. I've been searching for about 2 weeks now trying to find that.


Thanks again,
