I'm not sure what you are looking for.Do you mean for a saddle ring on a carbine?

Did you also lose the spring and screw that holds the stadia(?) to the long range sight?
I lost the rear sight slide for my Enfield. No not for a carbine.

Is it an Armisport or Euroarms?

Taylor Arms is an excellent choice, just call them and let them know what you need.
I don't know I got if for my birthday. On the trigger guard it says made in Italy. that's all I know.

It is probably a Euroarms as only they put the made in Italy on the trigger guard.

Those Endfield rear sight springs and screws often come loose and get lost. It is a good idea to get three or four sight springs and screws for spares. You will need a little opticitians screwdriver to install the tiny sight spring screw. Those pesky items often get lost because you must leave the screw a little loose so the sight elevator will slide up and down. I would just tighten it up unless you are live firing at a target of some sort.

Unless you are live firing I would not worry too much about it. What would a period soldier have done? There were no spare parts for enfields unless they came from a condemed gun and then they had to be hand fitted unless it was a London gun. Many originals have lost their rear sight. Some no doubt were knocked off at the time.
Just a thought.
