SN# 2075 in .308 Winchester

I would guess the original stock may have cracked and a previous owner replaced it with a pre-64 stock but with the rounded recoil block instead of the clover leaf- who knows? Regardless, it’s a very clean 88 and the stock has crisp checkering and only a few light impressions.  The finish I would guess at > 95%. I was able to hit an 8″ square 3/3 times, standing at 100 yards, so it’s minute of deer accurate.

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....

…and now it sports a receiver sight.  Took a little bit of patience to find one in the same condition as the rifle but I finally found one This has the knobs instead of the screws for adjustment.

Offhand, with those crude sights, that puts you well ahead of Mr. “Average Hunter.”

That sight will undoubtedly help to improve your accuracy with that rifles.  Please show us a picture(s) with it mounted.

Not the best picture but I am happy with the aesthetics.  Anything that looks good AND is useful is a plus. Nevermind the condensation on the receiver… From AC to outside in LA is a bad thing, this time of year…
