    Finally was able to take the 1898 to the range. After a slight adjustment to the windage (interesting that it seems to be designed for one-handed, on-the-fly adjustment), it was spot on and was able...

    Sweet -- these may have been same batch delivered to the NJ Guard, at least they most probably were in use there at the same time.

    Very interesting. As I happen to have it right here, here's a pic of the sight for a 1894 St Denis Mauser that was re-configured by the French for the Uraguayan army (if I'm not mistaken).

    Thanks Daan, I did find some Remington so will try to grab that.

    Ah, thanks. I got as far as the front barrel band and the front-blade stumped me -- so it needs a tap with a pin punch, got it. And noted on the hand guard. In fact, on my 1942 M1903 Modified...

    Excellent, many thanks to you all for the insights / information. Being able to understand these details makes a big difference. I do know that it is been in our family since the 1940s or so.
