Is the elevation drum marked in yards?


Edit: Nevermind. My eyes were deceiving me. Can you get some pics of the base and drums from the side?

The hooded aperture is. Is the sight base marked? The elevation knob is standard M1 Garand.

The windage knob is not marked NM,, is the base marked anything on the right ear?
If that windage knob screws into that base, then the base is not a NM one.An NM base and NM windage knob have fine threads.
Only NM part I see is the aperture.
The elevation pinion is made by New Haven Clock. They made both M1 and M14 pinions. Does it have an M on it?

No markings on the base. Yes the wind age knob screws into the base

How about USGI parts any way to identify?

Windage knob is Bruce Machine & Engineering
Elevation knob New Have Clock
Cant tell from the picture if the aperture is USGI or commercial

McFlury: If you go to sell it, I'd be interested. PM Me.

I'm not trying to profit from your misfortune. I hate it happened to you.

I'd love to have it if I can afford.

That's what it looks like to me. Although I don't know who might have made them for IHC.

No it was advertised as a M1 sight with NM aperture. I asked if it had USGI parts seems fine

I will let you know if I don't keep it
