Hello friends.  It’s been a crazy last 15 months or so, and I started a business during covid that is just now opening.  It has been a draining year on my finances and gun buying has been nil.

But old habits die hard, and I came across a collection that was too good to pass up.  One of the things I acquired is this 1936 model 63 carbine.  It is missing the rear ladder but had this receiver sight on it.  I don’t see any marks and it appears to be a redfield of sorts, but I am unsure.  If any of you much more educated folks can tell me what it is I would appreciate it!

Thanks in advance, 34871.sight-1.jpgImage Enlargersight-2.jpgImage Enlarger

It is a Lyman No. 56 (and is marked as such on the top of the sight right behind the elevation knob).

Thanks Bert, I dropped my loupe over the weekend and I can’t see these fine markings like I used to.
I appreciate the help very much!
