Over the years, I have accumulated a whole lot of various gun parts. Sometimes I find stuff and cannot remember how I ever acquired it. I was working on a sporterized 1903 Springfield that cost me $21.00 because the rear Redfield aftermarket aperture sight was missing. Not to worry, I went through the stash and found a complete Redfield aperture rear sight that came off a rifle back in the 1970s or 1980s. It now sits proudly on the sporterized 1903 Springfield.

This morning, I was working on a sporterized U.S. 1917 Enfield with a missing Pacific aperture rear sight. Same story, after a bit of diving into boxes and plastic bags, I came up with a complete Pacific aperture rear sight. I think someone gave me the Pacific sight decades ago. Now it is on the U.S. 1917 Enfield and is waiting to go to the range for a sight in session. All the best...

Gil, congrats on restoring two old firearms to a wholesome condition. Great finds like this tend to re-enforce pack-rat behavior.

I love those sites I am always looking through "junk" boxes looking for Lymans' Redfields' Vavers and the like to me they are the epitome of class on classic bolt action sporters.

I'm with you FN...I love ratting through the "buggery boxes" in Gun Shops etc. You often come across some really good stuff.

Cheers, Vince
