[Image Can Not Be Found]Hi, I have purchased a model 52 rifle serial 91236C.  I believe it to be 1956 yom.  It has a large “Tunnel” front sight, 2 scope blocks and a mounter side plate for rear sight.  Would anyone know which sight I need to look for and where I might find one?

thank you,

If you put a scope on it you may not be able to use the proper rear sight?  I believe that the rear mount is for a Redfield sight.  JWA or Seewin can set us both straight.

Front sight is a Redfield International, so maybe rcvr sight was also a Redfield International; or it could have been a Redfield Olympic.  Don’t know if both fit the same base.  You can find both sights on ebay.

The rear sight base is for the Redfield Olympic, Redfield International Match, or Redfield Palma sight. They all use a common base.
