I like the overall color of the metal finish. The rear sight looks pretty suspect though on my fuzzy monitor.

I agree with the rear sight being a possible reproduction...clearer pictures would help. The wood almost looks brand new from some angles. Overall, it's an IBM that has a very nice appearance to it.

rear sight does not have any casting lines.

why does the rear sight look like a repro?

the wood is not brand new, and has the correct cartouches, plus a repair near the butt plate. i was told by the seller that his friend, the previous owner, had gone over the stock with linseed oil.

the rear sight does not look like a repro up close, plus it has the correct markings. the only thing that is suspect is the flat bolt, although it is marked aob.

So you're discounting what two somewhat experienced people have said?
The answer is always the same when asked why some of these parts are repop. We just advise if they appear USGI or not.

i have looked at other pictures of rear sights on this forum, and my sight looks exactly the same. and who's to say just because i'm new to this forum, i don't know an authentic sight when i see one. plus, my camera does not allow me to take good closeups of smaller parts.

Thank you. Even with the poor definition of the sight in the pics I'm pretty sure the sight is a reproduction.

Here's a clear photo of an IBM rear sight. Does yours look like this?

yes it does. it also fits tightly in the dovetail, wich i found out is one way to tell if its a repro or not. it is marked s on the left side and wb on the right with small crisp lettering.

next, your going to tell me the stock looks like a repro!

Mike. Dont try to take closeups. Pull back so the camera can focus. Take higher quality if you have the option.
From there you can crop the picture. If you need help let me know

Your eye and the camera adjust differently for low light. The camera likes more light.

Take pictures near a window during the day or even outside, not in direct sun.
You will be amazed

You probably want to post better pics of the cartouche on the stock. Is this a Sam Tal madge Carbine?

Without clear pictures, it hard to say much of anything. The only thing I can say for sure is that picture I posted is a reproduction rear sight. I'm sure one just like it could be found by carefully searching a few places that sell carbine parts.

Mike, can you take picture of the dovetail area from the top?
Look at your receiver to the rear of slide channel. Are there markings there?

Also you are double posting. Try to put all your thoughts in one post or edit the previous post.
