I like a matte finish.

Every optic I have is matte, save two: a silver UltraDot, and a silver Leupold pistol scope.

If I could wave a magic wand and make them matte... I would! :D

I don't have specific years for you, but later models (last few years) of 77/22 rifles had their barrels and receivers threaded, vs. the 10/22 style V-block barrel retention method.

Ah... the dreaded 2-piece bolt separation! I think it's mostly seen on bolts with tapered ears.

bichettereds-

Is your sight base "silver" colored, or is it my imagination? Mine are black.
