    Here is the rear sight. When I bought it, it had a scout scope mount on it, and the sight was tied to the receiver.

    Well you certainly lucked out there. Included and not destroyed?

    Not sure why the potential buyer said there wasn't a rear sight. I also could have also sworn there was a picture without a rear sight, but I honestly don't remember and I left all the Facebook groups. Couldn't deal with it anymore. That's a plus having the rear sight. Also good that you didn't destroy it. Also good that you joined the forum where the real knowledgeable collectors are.

    Yes, I got VERY lucky in that regard.
    Also, if anyone would like more pictures of a specific area I'll be happy to oblige.

    That would be because the picture with it without the rear sight was right after I took off the scout mount and right before I found out what it was. That's when I took most of those pictures.

    Thank you for clearing this all up! As far as additional pictures go, the next time you have the rifle out of the stock I would be very interested to see ANY other markings on surfaces of the receiver, like on the bottom flat or on the sides below the wood line. Specifically I’m interested in the “circle V7” and “circle A5” markings. You have at least one of each, and sometimes they are also other odd places, and often partial strikes like the V7 you show. Thank you!!

    This is the only other marking that I've found.

    Excellent! That is one of the other locations that I have noted them to appear, I’m glad you found that one!! Thank you! If you spot any more anywhere please show us.
