OK Gents need help ID-ing some Items. This is a AA MG  Vane Site #7, I think is  for a Lewis Aircraft Gun Jap or Western MG or Possibly a MG15 German... Then #8 is a Small Wire Site 1.25" diameter on a Dove Tail Base.. Third is a simple Rear AA Site on a threaded shaft #6... and finally #9 some currently offer for sale and say are for the Bell ANM2 Twin Mount, But I'm not too sure...

What can you folks offer for input?

Thanks

#8 above sure looks like a front sight for an LMG 08/15.

I saw that too but it clearly different when compared.. I still think it is for a German MG15 possibly but am not 100% certain without a good

image.

Thanks for your input.

Charlie, not MG-15, I have guns with both variations and they don't match. I believe # 7 to be the vane sight for the lewis aircraft gun. and indeed may be Japanese. the bought some and made some. we had  more than 10 variations when the lewis was prime for us but its been 30 + yrs ago. as for # 9 check the threads if not metric it looks exactly like my bell sight.. NICE BATCH!   mike
