    All, I have a salvaged sight base that I have no need for and couldn't bring myself to throw it away. Hoping it will be of useful to someone for a project. It came off of an octagon 15/16" barrel, but had been brazed on. I removed it from the barrel I am reusing, there is still braze on it. It will need a little file work, and more parts added to finish off. Will gladly pass along to someone that can use this. So who needs this?

    That was what I keep thinking. But figured I would offer it up before I did.

    Nice gesture offering it up,but the time to clean it up would far exceed what its worth.

    I agree. Nice gesture. But just cleaning it up won’t make it any more usable as the tab for the other screwhole is broken off hence the brazing. And a TC Hawken sight is impossible to mount securely with only one screw.

    Will take a file to it tonight and try to clean it up some. Based on what else I have found. Thinking the previous owner trued to pocket weld it with braze onto the barrel.

    20190904_201205.jpg The second hole is there, it was brazed closed. However, it does appear to be a bit thin on the back side of the hole. With a little ingenuity and work, it would function fine I do believe. I guess if no one has a use or want this, I can throw it into my springs and random box.

    Let it ride. At some point someone will be looking for one and be greatful that you had one at a price that is hard to beat, even if it is a ‘fixer upper’. You followed forum rules and set a price. Would call price ‘free’ if someone needed or wanted the item. Thank you.

    You are correct, I guess I should have made that a bit clearer.

    This sight is free, and I am even willing to eat the shipping on it.
