Fortuitous Lesson

The Lyman #48WJS sight I bought to get an elevation pointer went for very cheap.

Last night, I noticed why.

Here's the sight I bought, minus the pointer and aperture I've already salvaged.

Here's an intact sight.

Notice how the range scale sticks out below the bottom of mine and is flush with the bottom on the intact sight?  A previous owner must have cut the base down so they wouldn't have to relieve their stock.  Bubba strikes again!
