Ball Bearing in rear sight???
Been a while since my last post but here is one that has me scratching my head.
I disassembled my National Match rear sight and much to my surprise a small ball bearing came out and fell on my bench.
I was not aware that a ball bearing was part of the rear sight assembly. I was not aware that a ball bearing was a part of the rifle at all. I have not seen one illustrated in the owners manual or in any YouTube posts.
Anyone have a clue for me as to where this bearing belongs?
I bought this rifle second hand from a gun store so I have no previous owner to query about it.
What do you think? Got in there by accident somehow? Important piece of the rear sight assembly?
Would like some input before I reassemble the sight.
Thanks in advance
