    Short answer- NO. You are talking about the Before Times. "It" will never go back to what it used to be with price or availability.

    Militaries of the world figured this out quite a while ago. The modern world got caught up in scopes and optics and forgot. The aperture- peep sight- system with a fine, flat top square post front sight of a specific width, paired with a rugged...

    Hey, thanks Davidmagnum! Thats just the type of information i was looking for. Ive got a line on an 80's Winchester, if that falls through (more than likely to) I'm going to take another look at the Cimarons as a shooter. Impressive shooting too!
