they could have come new with factory installed sights yes. There is no real way to know if it was installed by Remigton or after it left the factory.

I just picked up this tang peep sight yesterday and thought it was a real bargain for the condition and with apeture and mounting screw, box and papers.

I think this guy could have gotten a lot more for it if he had not made it a one day auction. I'm sure many of you guys never saw it out there.

The price on these varies greatly. Look at what a used worn one sells for on Ebay without apeture or mounting screw.

Also notice the one currently on auction up to $96.00 already.

I know the one I bought is Marbles and the ones on Ebay are Lyman, but I have not seen any price difference in the past on these.

Let me know if you think I got a bargain.

Be sure to scroll down on the Ebay site. Yes, that's right $306.51.

You done good for sure! You are right, never saw it and I've been watching. Have noticed that the commieBay ones seem to be lined in gold. :shock:

The $306.51 sight sale IMHO was a perfect storm for the seller. I think 2 guys that had to have it got into a pissin contest. I watch some auctions and they seem to end in the $125.00 price point on average.
