That was clearly the opinion of the shooter who dressed this one up in new Redfield Olympic sights!  And in its earlier career, it apparently had been equipped with a fairly rare Lyman 48T rcvr sight; gun would be more valuable had the T been left there.  I wonder if it was phenomenally accurate, to be still being shot in some kind of competition so many decades after it was built.

Yep, then they drilled and tapped the LH side of the receiver for the Olympic mounting bracket. It is a bit unusual to see the RH 48T Lyman on a flat top receiver though. Most that I have seen have the optional full round receiver.

I know that Larry’s do.  But then, you buy a rifle with factory sights, then decide you’d like something better; not uncommon.  But the owner of this 52 liked it so well he had it D&T’d not once but twice!  But didn’t think it was worth the trouble to have it converted to the Speedlock action, which is the first thing I’d have done if I owned it when the Speedlock became available.

Mine has a full round receiver. The M48T right side mounted, is very scarce. I have never seen one on a flat top. Big Larry
