    Anyone recognize this old King Rear Sight and what it may fit?

    I haven't found much info on this one. It doesn't have the normal dovetail. It has the radius for a barrel. The hole spread is .515.

    I thought it might be for a M-8 Rem, but they measure .625 , and have a large dia barrel shroud. Maybe a Rem .22 ?

    This is just a guess but I'll say it's for the 510 thru 512 Reminton .22 rifles. The curved piece hides the dovetail on the barrel just like the original sight.

    ^What he said... some of the lighter barrel Remington 22s had that 2 screw mounting instead of a dove tail.^
