For vintage military you have to use the standard sights, so no target diopters and such. There were a number of them at Simpson's with target sights on them, prices last summer ranged from $300-$1000+. Most were in the $4-500 range. I can't remember but mine was $500 or less, I also bought a brand new second magazine for $80, it required a bit of latch fitting, no wonder they stamped the serial numbers on the originals.
Heh. Really like the look and design of the straight pulls, and there are two for sale semi-locally for $325-350, but hate getting another "odd" caliber I have to find surplus or reload for. Oh darn!
