Hi Marty,

For the Winchester Model 75 equipped with the Redfield 63 front sight the Redfield base was the “DW” aka “1DW”.  I don’t have one out to measure but I believe it is the same height as the Unertl “AK” base which I think is .180″ high.  I can measure some later today if you desire?

Best Regards,

Hi Marty,

They are available on the secondary market.  here is an “AK” for sale on eBay –  Unertl AK Base (EXPENSIVE)

Steve Earle also makes a quality reproduction base as well –  https://www.steveearleproducts.com/scopeblocks.html   I like the set-screw feature on Steve’s blocks

I will get you the actual dimensions today but regardless, you need the lowest cross dovetail block available.
