Interesting. But it doesn’t use the factory holes already present on the side of the receiver. Someone drilled and tapped new holes so the sight is mounted as far back as possible. In fact the back screw hole actually goes into the threads of the takedown cap. As a result the sight must be removed to field strip the rifle. And it wasn’t made for this stock as it was cut down to make room and as you can see the bottom of the elevation scale has been cut off.
