    One? he likely set aside one of each. I recall reading they all went through at least one US refurb in Europe before the Italians got them. I doubt any of them had original flip sights - maybe someone will jump on here and correct me. I also read somewhere there was no paper trail or other knowledge of exactly how the Italianicon national police ever obtained them.

    Yea I was trying to be ironic. Or sarcastic however one would look at it. I'm just jelious. It would be nice to have the first shot.

    I bet if we email midwayusa, they would could kindly get him to supply a pic of the best-of-the-best in this lot. Is Midway a sponsor of milsurps?

    What usually happens is new people put a fake flip on their Carbine and think it looks sorta ok. As time goes on they realize that to experienced people it looks pretty wrong.

    Years ago, BQ pointed out that when the Depots changed to type 2 and 3 sights they were supposed to retain the flips for future possible use. Maybe there is a huge supply somewhere?
    I never could understand the logic of bitching about a greatly improved rear sight? How a beat to heck, jammed in fake piece of Chinese crap was so cool to the eye and brain. A mod that completely screws up whatever the depot did to make the adjustable shoot dead on.
