82 classic with Lyman sights



Log in to see fewer ads
Ran into a Kimber of Oregon 82 Classic with the open sights option at a gun show today. First time I've seen one with sights, and a quick check on gunbroker didn't show any either. I'm wondering how unusual these are, and how much of an increase in value the Lyman sights bring, if any?

From my observations, you see them on 10% or less of the Classics. They were an option and guns with sights in 99% overall condition are worth a small premium...maybe $50.00 or so.

Vert's pretty much on the money, they really aren't that common. There was also a version with a Williams rear sight, even more uncommon. And the Williams set included a front sight hood.

Thanks for the info, guys. I was gonna guess the sights would bring a bigger premium than that, so good to know. Worth a bit more than without, but not a "grail" gun by any means.
