Local shop I visit in Massachusetts had some dealings with Col Brophy and the shop keeper has some repro mounts, screws and eye cups that Col Brophy had made up.

My buddy has a complete rifle with case he wants to sell. I should get it and offer it up to you guys. I think it's a restoration as it has some ww2 parts on it. But all the parts are original. Pretty neat rifle honestly

I called Hayes Otoupalik last night, balls of fire, that ol'boy can talk and talk and talk... Hayes sold me a rubber eyepiece, a disassembly/assembly wrench, and finally, a manual. Total was $199 - cough, cough - but you can't get these things anywhere elselllll Hayes is something of a savant when it comes to these kinds of scope. The history lesson and the pointers on the historical development of the scope were absolutely priceless

Yup, that's where I bought my stuff from the other day... No other sources of material or parts of the W-S are out there?

Who is Col Brophy?
A man who was a real gentleman, that I had the pleasure to meet, and am lucky enough to own a few things from his collection. He wrote this among other things.

I received by items from Hayes Otoupalik unexpectedly fast!!! Both the eye cup, the scope tool were very well made. The Manual (reproduced from the original Army Ordinance reference material was sharp and easy to read. Although in today's world we would have broken everything down into subassemblies for the detail work... On the other hand, it's what everyone used back then so they must have gotten by
