    We Marines believe that God gave America the greatest gift he could bestow to man while he lived on this earth-freedom. We also believe he gave us another gift nearly as precious-our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Coast Guardsmen, and Marines-to safeguard that gift and
    guarantee no force on this earth can every steal it away. It has been my distinct honor to have been with you here today. Rest assured our America, this experiment in democracy started over two centuries ago, will forever remain the "land of the free and home of the brave" so long as we never run out of tough young Americans who are willing to look beyond their own self-interest and comfortable lives, and go into the darkest and most dangerous places on earth to hunt down, and kill, those who would do us harm.

    I posted this 1939 sa m38 with this sight in the last year. It was done by bubba and is a globe sight with the globe cut off and possibly jb weld or something used to form a blade. Unsure if this was it.

    That certainly is unique, but not what I was thinking about uber. I seem to recall it was very "blocky". My impression was that it was prototypical and somehow it made its way from Izhevsk to Finland during the Winter war or soon afterward. It was definitely dated 1939 and had the early pattern stock.

    It certainly was extremely interesting to an M38 nut like me.
