The front sight is a Cole's Patent, I believe.

I like! Gives me some ideas if I ever get work done on my Steyr.

I am going to copy your photos and add to an archive thread. So we get to keep the images here on NE for perpetuity.

Do you have any information on the Coles Patent front sight or a source for information?

Thanks.

Here's an illustration of the Cole's Patent Foresight Protector that sits on my Army & Navy Farquharson:





You can see photos of my rifle and a lot of discussion at this thread: Army & Navy CSL Farquharson - .450/.400 3.25" NE

My Fraser single shot .303 also has this front sight treatment. Here are some photos of the sight assembly and its components (courtesy of Mike Rowe).

Really nice, lovely rifles........Such a pity that the "pain in the ass" factor and $$$ for import/export permits and shipping to USA are what they are.......
Hey politicians.....It's not like these vintage arms are typically used for nefarious purposes.
