Hello
I originally posted this on my thread about stocks but thought it may deserve its own thread.
Would like to see pictures of othe WW2 carbines and the stake marks used on the rear sight.
Pictures of different makers would be useful, but woudl like to see a Standard Products rear sight.
Thanks, Ron

I am surprised that nobody has any pics to share, or maybe they just don't care!

Here is a shot that shows a receiver that has the original chisel line stake and the upgraded punch marks..This one would not be suitable for a restoration because of the punch marks. :(

I am surprised of the lack of pics and rsponse to pics of sight stake marks. This is a learning experience that all can gain by. If you have carbines, don't be afraid to post a pic of the rear sight.
Out of all the carbine collectors, only 2 of us have post pics. Ron

All my Carbines have the adjustable sight, so there is nothing to share.

Hello Mike
That is intersting. I wonder if it was because the sight slot was dove tailed to a tigher tolerance? I guess with everything in collecting, we (I) could nit pick just about everything! Ron
