I am making the leather sight cover for the Enfield Snider Cavalry Carbine, this also fits the Enfield Martini Henry Cavalry Carbine if the two fitting screws are present (this does not fit the Afghan models).  I also make holsters, rifle slings, belts etc and am very happy to make one-offs of any particular item you may require.  I have a sight cover and rifle sling on ebay, so please use the links below if you are interested.

Yes, I do still make them but I'm having problems with my aged lathe so can't make any until I've got it fixed.  I'll let you know as soon as it's done.

Likewise, I am also interested in purchasing one of you reproduction leather sight covers for my Snider MK III carbine.  Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I've just got back into BMF after my computer died - I'm not good with computers at the best of times but I've finally got it sorted.  I saw your post and if you are still want a sight cover you can either buy one through my new ebay listing or if you want to do it direct then you can save the £2 ebay fees if I just send you a Paypal invoice
regards
