Rem 510

I've had a Remington model 510 for several years, made in 1949, that I have finally taken in for restoration. It belonged to a friend from my youth that is still a friend today (I'm 58). We did a lot of hunting when we were kids and he was such an amazing shot with open sights and long distance with this .22. He became a felon so I sold his guns for him but I kept the .22 because I have a few Remington rifles already. It was in rough shape when I took it in, bolt handle was missing and the stock where the bolt pulls down was beat up from using a screwdriver to cock and eject rounds So I'm excited to see it with a refinished stock and a mirror blued finish. I'll post pics. Also, held it up to look through the sights and the rear sight was pretty fuzzy, the gunsmith is reluctant to put scope mounts on, too thin, any ideas?
