Why in the hell would someone destroy the charger slot that way, I am going to say something you may not like, but that rifle is destroyed, I don`t know how you are going to afix a rear sight to that...............

All of the golden state arms guns i can find online are that way it looks almost like that cutout IS the rear sight, I'm at a loss here, I had never noticed that before.

EDIT: After a little searching, it looks like you need a Santa Fe rear sight. It is similar to a No.4

You might check & see if something like this might fit with a little finagling, might actually make it shootable...........

A No.4 or slightly modified version may work, there is something out there.
I'll upload some close ups of my No4 MkI for you.

Ok, I've done some digging and found your solution, unfortunately I have no idea where to get one.

Here is the sight, it is proprietary to Golden state arms Enfields.

You may actually have to have one made if you can't find one, fortunately it's relatively simple.
