I’d be happy to. I’m away on a work thing, but I’ll be back this weekend and I’ll put up a few snaps.

Thanks for the reply. I've never heard of the rifle. It's neat to find out new stuff which is one of the reasons I really like this site.

I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures too.

Got home late last night. The weather report says expect rain for the next week. I wanted to shoot fresh shots with direct sun, but I don’t want a long wait. I’m just linking the gunbroker auction link instead. Unfortunately it does not include the aperture sight that inspired this post. Because of that it doesn’t fit into this forum as well as I would hope. I hope the moderator isn’t bothered by that.

I love the things we’re made in this era. Well paid craftsmen used good tools and skills learned over a career. Not minimum wage workers pushing buttons on a machine or an assembly line without continuity of craft. The fit is noticeably tighter and smoother. The clicks are positive and predictable. This trigger is very nice. There definitely a place for newly manufactured pieces, but you’d pay quite a bit more today for the quality they produced in the 1930’s.

Edited to add.....I ordered a Merit Adjustable Iris that came in. What a cool piece of kit that is.
