    A rather pricey option at the time.
    As for wondering, those sights normaly became rock solid when the action is cocked. A cocking piece sight was rather common during the turn of the century on your "better" rifles. Many rifles that this type of rear sight also came with the option of double set triggers which was very popular on european rifles but was not very popular with north american rifles. Go figure.

    A very nice rifle and rather rare too!
    It appears in V good condition. Congrats on finding it.

    The foreend cap will probably be black horn.
    Thanks for showing it to us Dusty!

    The rear sight has a smaller aperture inside the large one. it is pinned at the bottom and can be flipped down and forward in order to use the large aperture. Just wondering, in this normal on all those types of sights?

    Cool rifle! Single feed capable with mag cutoff is a very period feature

    Single locking lug ala Mauser 71?

    Not getting any answers or other sites so here goes:
    Can anyone tell me if this rifle has any collector value? Some say it has no collector value yet there were only 1446 made in total from 1899-1909. I have been reading that only around 12 are accounted for in 303 British. I have not been able to find any for sale so it is kinda hard to find a value. Pics in posts 5 and 12
