Winning bid was $2,070 and I am not certain if that is including the premium. I should have went for the moon, as this one would be a premier addition to my collection.

I do have a parts bin and lots of spare parts. I bought them when things like that were readily available in the UK. I can dig them up and compare them with my other Cadet rifles. :bthumb:

Wow, I have a very similar stock that I bought here at RFC for a Remington 37. If I could ever get the action and stock married, it would be a miracle.

Actually I have seen the same on several original finish 12/15's so I would say that the roll stamp was either worn or had an uneven roll right off the factory line. Mine look the same as that one.

Dont forget that Redfield also has (had) the International and Palma series sights. The Palma is considered superior, and the price reflects that. You can find them on eBay almost every day.
