    Default Interesting M91 rear sight leaf with peep

    Hi everyone,
    I received this sight leaf in a group of parts. I assume it was done stateside, but I thought I would ask.

    I don't see any apparent welding/brazing marks, it has even patina and no stamps of any kind. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Yeah that's a later modification. I saw one for the m/27 that replaced the v notch plate and was a straight swap that was pretty cool.

    "Terror is not a new weapon. Throughout history it has been used by those who could not prevail, either by persuasion or example. But inevitably they fail, either because men are not afraid to die for a life worth living, or because the terrorists themselves came to realize that free men cannot be frightened by threats, and that aggression would meet its own response. And it is in the light of that history that every nation today should know, be he friend or foe, that the United States has both the will and the weapons to join free men in standing up to their responsibilities."

    Wow that is very interesting! Would like to see how they did it haha. Don't see anything as you mentioned to how it's fastened there? I wouldn't mind trying that thing out on a M91 or Dragoon!
