I had been looking for over a year now as the original sight slot had a Williams marked sight blank in it. I have to say, the single leaf #6 is a rare bird to find on the loose.

Last week I found one at auction on Ebay. Very nice one to match my M57. Got bid up to over $100 by someone who also needed one, but my mind said, go for it. I received the sight yesterday and it was a perfect match.

Now for the rest of the story. The day after I won the over $100 bid, I found another on Gun Broker, mint, and never put on a rifle for a Buy It Now of $59.00. I bought that one too. Just in case.

As for the sling, the M57 did not come with a sling. That was the M60-A target rifle. Very low numbers on these with just over 6,000 made. Probably the rarest of the standard model 22's. BTW, I am still looking for a sling. Maybe I could trade my spare, mint, #6 for one?? Ha Ha !!

This Summer, I will get to my range and test some of my 22 collection out. It will be fun to shoot my M60's and especially, my M58. Big LarrySmileSmile

Hi Big Larry,

The one time I took my Model 57 to the range it grouped three shots less than 3/8ths of an inch at 100 yards.  I did not realize that this model Winchester was so accurate.  That was back when my eyes were better, and even then, I was aided with its Lyman 438 Field Scope.  It has the more narrow sling than the Model 60.

I'm looking for a Model 58 too!

I just bought my M58 from from a Cabelas in Richfield, WA.It is pretty close to 90% with a minty bore. Paid big time for it. $715 shipped. Most of the blue remains on the bbld. receiver and the trigger guard. Really nice one, so I paid the price for it. You never see these in this condition for sale. Most were used for boat anchors. No plans to D&T my M57 for a scope. That was another expensive undertaking. The 22's are catching up with the values of the old lever rifles.

BTW, the Kerr slings for a M52 are not the same as the ones for the 1917 Enfield, too long, but it is funny the M1907 leather slings that fit the M1917 also fits the M52. Another fact, the WW2 dated Kerrs do not fit a Thompson either. Too short.  Big Larry
