    How to Identify Pre war and wartime SA Apertures.and Rear Sight bases.

    Hello there. I am aware of the no track early SA apertures and the early SA rear bases with rounded underside or rings but how does one tell a warime one of each of these post no tracks aperture and post rounded concentric rings base?

    Can anyone post pics of each?

    Many thanks!

                Here is a picture of early apertures without drawing drawing number and one with narrow rails/grooves. The other is an base without number but still has rounded bottom and milling ring. I also posted a picture of an aperture from a 5.8M post war rifle. The knurling is heavier than normally found on WWII sights. Not sure there is much or any difference in late WWII and post war basis, others will probably add comments if there is.
