MG42 Rear Sights (Night Sights?)

Post by RetiredBuilder »

Hello, I recently acquired a kit that had a dual aperture rear sight, doing some searching on this forum I found mention of night sights(but no pictures to confirm) which is the only thing that made sense for these. Anybody have any more info on these, they came with a yugo kit, I'm guessing these were never used by the Germans? Are these relatively rare?

Yugo made, post war. Common, No. Rare, No. They made Front and Rear night sights. There were pics up, but since photobucket and others did what they did, a lot of pics that were not posted on this site were lost.
Thanks for the pics. I'l try to dig out a Front sight and add it's pics to this thread.
