Remington 121 Variant?

It looks like it was modified after it left the factory.

However, it does look nice.

Rear sight appears to be a Lyman R12 which was initially made for the older model 12. If so, the sight alone is worth a bit of money.....a quick check of Ebay for completed auctions of that sight will show that folks sometimes pay a hefty price for that sight.

Can't believe it was done after the factory, just looks like it belongs. Going to keep researching.

hi folks,
i have a very late 121, but i do not see any holes where a rear sight would have been. maybe a better picture? or may be such an early gun, maybe factory?

I believe the earlier guns were drilled and tapped for the tang sight. Newer production was not. Now I will have to look in the safe or check the Remington Book!

Were you talking about the tang sight or the barrel sight? I am no expert so hopefully someone will come along and comment!

DH = Manufactured September 1939.

PJ3 = Returned for repair June 1940 (Or potentially June 1962.)
