I am in need of a rear sight for my El Tigre.

Will put out an ad looking for one.

Did the Spanish use this sight on any other models they made???  Just want to expand my search.

thank you

    That's going to be a hard one to find. Only gun the Spanish used that on, and was fabricated from Model 1893 Mauser rear sights.

    Sounds like it may be a challenge to locate one ☺☺☺

    You might use the ladder sight from a destroyer carbine - not a perfect match but Spanish design and on the gun that replaced the tiger lever guns...

    Much easier to locate - that's the direction I would go in for now if and until you find the exact one - which might prove to be unobtanium...

    Interesting lead and thank you ☺

    Possibly the mexican model 1910 and chilean 1895 mauser are identical ladder sights - I know they are interchangeable as far as "fit" goes...

    Here are a series of pictures that much prove invaluable for anyone exploring this subject..

    Perhaps a forward of the receiver mounted long eye relief scout scope set up - or a red dot / holy sight optic package - or a traditional scope arraignment as pictured above might be worth exploring or fun from a recreational range day usage perspective...

    Hope these help in some regard - can you tell us a little of the back story and your plans as far as the carbine goes???

    Great pictures and thanks for the information and ideas.

    This one arrived about a year ago.  Took her in on a partial trade.  She came wearing a Winchester three leaf sight that looks good, but I will pursue an original.
