    Brackets

    This bracket is designed for attachment to the left hand side of the Mk. I .303-in. Vickers machine gun and serves as a mounting for the dial sight.

    It consists of the following parts:-

    Bracket– This bracket has a dovetail slot, to accommodate the dial sight, and holes which correspond with the joint pin and “T” fixing pin holes in the rear crosspiece. An arm extends forward, the front end of which is slotted to engage behind the head of the cover joint pin.
    Pin, “T” fixing, rear-crosspiece, Mk. II;
    Pin, joint, rear-crosspiece, Mk. III;
    Pin, joint, cover, Mk. V.

    These pins are similar to the corresponding components of the gun which they replace when the bracket is fitted, differing from the service stores only in that they are longer, in order to accommodate the bracket.
