The rear barrel sight is a early Winchester sight found on 66’s and early 73’s. It has a flat step elevator.

The top picture with the screw is a combination of two sights. The base and screw are from a 1890 barrel sight with the rest is the back half of a stamped sight were the elevator slot was spread apart to fit around the screw.

Bob,

Negative on the 1890 sight, The 1890 rear sight had a round dovetail combo that acts as the screw to fasten to the sight and the round dovetail portion sits in the dovetail. (not the best explination) I am very familiar with 1890 sights and for sure this is not one or any portion of it.

Next question, based on the condition of the 66/73 sight what’s the value?

  The first sight looks homemade, no value. The rear barrel sight is worth $150 because it has a flat top, with the clover leaf or buckhorn design $200. The elevator is worth $25 because it has the early flat steps. This sight was used on the 66, 73, and 76. T/R

Its been a while since I’ve one of them off but now I remember. The sight was made from one similar to this one. The base could of been it or made from a dovetail filler.

Remington also used a base with a threaded hole for fastening the sight to, Model 24’s and 12’s come to mind.
