that is neat. Thanks for the pics. I’ve got a lead on one. So hopefully it’s not staked, or lightly so I can get it moving.

got a windage adjustable sight in the mail today. A hour or so tinkering a tiny bit of blood and it’s installed. Seems to adjust smoothly with a positive click. It’s in decent shape but on par with my rifle. So I’m happy with it. Obtw never been pinned couple of stamps on underside and a low serial number.

Looking good!
So how about a range report soon?
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

A good find 👍
Any chance of a photo of the underside marking etc?
And good luck on the range time zeroing.
Cheer’s.
Anyone seen the Tardis Box anywhere? 🤨

I’ll post pics and a range report this weekend. Got a ladder worked up with ppu 180 sp and ppu brass. Varget. Last weekend cast a bunch of 316” 213 gr Noe RN. Gotta powder coat and GC. Going to set up the chrono and lead sled so should be fun. I’ll get a pic of underside of the sight then. BRP said condition was fair. So I wasn’t expecting much. The sight seems to work as it should with normal wear on pin hole. I may replace the pivot pin later but it will work for now.

I picked up this set a while ago but not sure I will use it. I'll list it if I don't. Not staked but at some point a set screw was used to stabilize the aperture. I also took the barrel mount sleeve as it has the reusable pivot pin with key/cotter-pin hole at one end. I just wanted the range slider with micro screw. Adjustment L&R works fine.

A good looking one it is too!
With a bit of a past (history) being used twice previously 😉👍!
Can’t unfortunately make out the maker or see any inspection view marks....prolly around there somewhere.
Cheer’s today.
