Ebay would be a long shot.  Much more likely source is ABE, but nothing there either.  Suggest you think of another gift.  Did you see all those books “Old Logger” is selling?

JMR-

Have you considered this book?

https://paulinemuerrle.com/winchester-standard-sight-equipment/

I don’t have my copy of this one yet, I still need to pick it up from my Friend Tedk… But I do have the Madis book, and for me (being a collector of 20th Century Winchesters) it’s been more confusing than authoritative.  Not Madis’ fault… Winchester just had the annoying habit of changing/updating the design of sights and using the same designation…  Pre-war 22K versus post-war 22K being an example…

I just ordered a copy of Pauline’s book too.

 

I looked on Randy’s website and if he had one it is very pricey.

Any of Strobel’s 3 books are a lot better.
