Thanks Bob, I will be getting a 57EW for the rifle. It's a shame about it being drilled for the scope but at least the holes are in a straight line, I'll put plug screws in and try not to think about it too much.

Just did a 4:00AM eBay search for the 57EW, the one I had looked at is gone, there will be others though.

I took the 1899 to another shop for show and tell. Joe's opinion was that it has been cleaned up. A good job but it isn't totally original. When it looks to be too good to be true it usually isn't. He did think the price I paid was about right though, so I won't feel too bad. I'll get the Winchester 1910 over to him next week, It may turn out it has been cleaned up also, but that's why we consult experts.

Just checked eBay for the 57EW, one was just posted so I didn't wait this time, it should be here by the 18th. Getting it might be kinda silly, it cost half of what I paid for the rifle but I think the rifle deserves the original sight.

Great shopping spree for you NHcollector2. Nice pickup on some exceptional classics. I don't have a single 99...yet. Been looking at some 69's also, don't have one of those yet either, but I'm lurking and saving the pennies. Good job on your selections, and I agree that you MUST grab those deals when they come up like that.

Not too bad. Does your rifle still have it's original 93B Shark Fin front sight? Those are really hard to find. Big Larry

Yes, it has that. But for the fact that it was drilled for a scope, and that is a BIG but, it is in very fine condition.

The 57EW sight I snoozed on was $120... an original box comes with this one though.

Seems to be about the going price for them now. I tried and gave up on trying to get a decently priced 48F for my 52 as the prices have gone up so much I can't justify it and I don't really have a need for one on my 52 anyway. Just wanted it for the originality....

I don't usually shoot well with aperture sights but when I got my 69A with the 57EW on it I took it out to shoot it and was easily hitting clay pigeons at 75 yards with it, then the broken pieces of the clay pigeons we shot, then the smaller pieces left over. It was quite a revelation and lots of fun....

Bob

Any M69-A can be very accurate out of the box. I have a bunch of them and all I have shot had superior accuracy. My favorite is one I bought for $50 back in the 80's. Standard sights, and a early straight bolt handle. Sold it to my Sister many years ago, and she recently sold it back to me. I offered her $300 for it, but she declined my offer and said she would only accept the $50 I had sold it to her for. Nice girl, my Sister. It remains my favorite M69-A and goes out shooting with me on occaision.
A couple holes in your rifle is of no consequence to a shooter, but can be a big problem to a collector especially being a nice, scarce, Target M69-A. Enjoy your new treasure. Big Larry

NH Collector, you had quite the shopping spree a few days back. Well Done! The M69A is quite the rifle. I really enjoy my pre-war version.
