A good friend gave me this rifle the other day. It is a 1932 vintage Speedlock, with , I think, a first year marked Winchester Proof Steel heavy bbl. Special order round top receiver, and a factory right side mounted Lyman 48-T. The front sight is a very early 1/2" Lyman M17-G. Ser. # 26469. It also has the scope blocs for the Winchester A-5 and the Lyman 5-A. The later scopes with Fecker type mounts will not fit. These rifles appear to be very scarce, if not rare. Big Larry

Very nice! Can’t recall ever seeing a rear sight like this one, unusual indeed. Thanks for posting.

One in particular.

The sight is a Lyman 48-T. Made for the left or the right side of a M52. Quite scarce indeed. Big Larry

I have had that M1890 since I was 16 years old. I am now 76. It's going to my Cousin when I croak. Big Larry
