    No problem to use a Mk III rear sight as it will fit on your base and you can change it back any time you like.

    If you install a butt sling swivel, it will devalue this fine rifle.

    How much would a 1/8" hole devalue my $200 rifle?

    Hard to say, how much would pulling a cobra jet from a numbers matching mustang and replacing it with a 5.0 devalue it?

    The 5.0 is a "better" engine after all...

    To be perfectly honest with you, the medical term "do no harm" becomes more important as you learn more about any subject matter.

    At some point in time we have all had to learn the hard way that permanent alterations to antique firearms is a travesty. Luckily mine took place with guns that are still available in the hundreds, but every time I see the ones that I altered, I experience regret.

    Your rifle is a museum exhibit, an example of the craftman's art, it is no longer a working tool as a firearm. When it was manufactured it cost the original owner several months wages, today, the value of money has changed, and our respect for these items of great value has been decreased.

    Really you have to realize that you are the custodian of a artifact, not it's owner.

    I hope that you are realizing that you have a very fine, hand tuned, uncommon, high grade target rifle. These rifles swept the ranges prior to the First War, winning the King's Prize at Bisley. Back when the King personally presented the prize.
    Are you just teasing us by referring to your $200 rifle?

    Yes I do realize the rifle is somewhat rare. Yes I was actually baiting the hook with $200 purchase. I did buy it a a local gun show from man who was asking $700 and I bargained him down to $600. This, of course, is going to be one of my "keepers!" I really like military versus commercial rifles. This rifle is, however, very near a military issued rifle so I did buy it not knowing what I had actually bought. I think I got a lucky buy. (I'm itching to find time to go and shoot her.)

    North of the razor wire I would expect a price tag of at least 2K.
