2010, Historic Firearms and Early Militaria, April 28 & 29

Rear sight leaf graduated to 12 stands for 1,200 meters, with the smallest peep hole, front sight blade between posts. Blackened finish. Two-piece buttstock with full-length handguard. This is either type 4 or 5 rifle. Experts have debated this question. The photograph should assist the purchaser in his personal decision.
