    Early Windage Knob Variations

    I’ve got a pair of early open arrow checkered windage knobs, one having just arrived in the mail yesterday. It is interesting to not that they share all the same machining features, but have distinctly different checkering. It’s like on the one that almost appears knurled that they left out the cut down the center of the serrations that’s would have made it truly checkered.

      Thanks for posting the photo for me, note this Winchester windage knob has a small groove down the center of the checkering pattern. RCS

    Are you planing to use these windage knobs for both a Springfield and Winchester restoration ? In the "Garand Stand Report" by Billy Pyle Spring 2003 No 50 issue, are detailed line drawings of Winchester elevation and windage knobs on page 13. I would think your windage knob on the right with the line in the center of the checkering would be Winchester. Redfield shows two variations
    of the flared arrow Winchester windage knobs too (I think that I have both). To make things interesting Redfield also shows two early variations of the WRA elevation knob - but not the "small size" BATTLE RANGE which is another variation.


      Hi guys. I also have a Checkered Windage Knob which is visually the exact same with missing middle line on checkering.

      Are these definetly WRA?

      Thank you!
