    Rear Sight Cover Finish

    What was the typical finish used originally on the numbered rear sight covers? You see them commonly with a parkerized finish which I assume is from refinishing. Were they original blued or dark phosphate like the later covers?

      The Winchester flat cover in this photo almost looks like a DuLite finish

      Winchester flat covers are without the small letter, number or symbol Click image for larger version

        Were they a polished blue or satin? I ask because I have a numbered cover with almost no finish I was thinking about getting refinished.

        Also were WRA covers punch marked like they did with the later style cover?
