81 Police
After looking at the repair stamp magnified, it is a lightly struck W U with another W U over it. Thanks for confirming that it is a Krieger conversion.

Re: Receiver Sight ID

1908 Model 8D With Leather Take Down Case

1908 Model 8D .35 REM With Leather Take Down Case by AL Furstnow. There are mailing/shipping labels on the back of the case but they unreadable. Wish it could talk. I don't believe the front sight is original. https://i.imgur.com/awdGA9e.jpg https://i.imgur.com/EUrX55g.jpg https://i.imgur.com/TsG52G...
