    Default Need ID Help, Receiver Peep Sight

    Not sure if this the correct place, but I will try......
    The sight has some numbers (assembly codes ?), a few diamonds with numbers (inspector codes ?), H634 ( model No. ?), and what looks like a bow & arrow stamp on the slide. Elevation knob has an "H" and a "B", windage has a "U" and an odd looking "V". The sight is very similar to the old Lyman 525 over under for the Winchester target 75 or 54.
    Any thoughts.....Thanks

    Lone wolf, look up vintage Lyman peep sights, maybe a #57. Tuco may jump in here on the bow & arrow mark.
    It looks a lot like the Izhevsk pre 1928 mark. HDHIC aka cliff

    Not a Lyman, Redfield, Armstrong, Parker Hale, not a common brand.

    Lone wolf, this one looks it had a base that allowed the sight to detach from the rifle. Did the aprature
    flip over for target or hunting use. Old stuff like this amazes me. HDHIC aka Cliff.

    Cliff, I am sure it needs a base that attaches, very similar to the Lyman 525, even allows a screw in aperture to be affixed below or over the slide, like the Lyman. I just wish I knew who made it.

    I did check all the various Parker Hale sights....no match. The Parker Hale all have a distinctive stamp. I think the "bow & arrow" stamp is the key as it is the mfg symbol.

    if I can remember, I'll surf thru my Stroebels sight book,
    may be one listed in there, (I know I have seen that logo before, besides on a mosin,,,)

    Bow and arrow sounds Russian to me. Maybe off one of the Finnish 28-76's Moisin Nagant target rifles. Just a guess on my part. Frank
