Not quite... I've heard the guy is just a po' ol' country boy who likes to tinker... not especially genius and really lacking in common sense.

....its a '42 VKT....both barrel and site are stamped only with a "7"....seemed that no matter what ammo I used it was hitting dead on center-but a good 1' high....I wouldnt have know except that I had 2 targets-1 directly above the other....I was aiming at the lower one-but was killin the top one... :ow: :rotflma:
....sadly,I havent looked at or used ebay in years...they pissed me off some time ago and I'm not too fond of paypal either

I look at them as semi-necessary evils.

User Want4What on eBay is Finnish and sells tall front sights for the M39 all the time for much less than I could produce them.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/want4what/m.htm ... ksid=p3686

is who I mean. He was selling on Gunbroker too but I just checked and he doesn't seem to be there any longer.

Regards,

Josh
