Got the upside down front sight off finally. Took out the set screw first. It took two of us to get it off. One to hold the rifle and I used a set of padded jawed cannon plug pliers to hold on to the front sight. It was a fight but we won.

Finally Found A Scope

Third day at the range with this M65. I am up to my fourth scope before I found one that works. The original 440 and two other Weaver B4's would not adjust. Poked around at the LGS and found another Weaver B4. Mounted it on the rifle last night. Initially it was shooting almost 2 feet high and 6 inches left. With a no click scope I just started turning until finally found the 10X ring on a 25 yard pistol target, Was using Federal AutoMatch at 50 yards from a rest. The upper target is five shots and the lower is 15 shots. Think it is a keeper.

There's a reason they now put seat-belts in cars and about 4,000,000 other things that are better then they were 'back then'

Non so blind as you who won't see. Call Turnbull or anyone else. Nobody uses steel-wool anymore for more than a few reasons 1. it's not the same steel wool you grew up with.

why do I bother?
Don't know, why do you?

Because he is right. FlysAlot gifted a Big 45 Pad to me. I tried it on the Model 65 in question. I was pleasantly surprised that the pad took more rust off then the steel wool had. Will take some more pictures later today and post them. The rifle is nver going to be a collectors pride and joy, but it is much more presentable.

Thank you, FlysAlot!
