    Elevation Knob Marking

    One of my elevation knobs has an unusual marking.

    It might be a miss applied "NHC".

    Is there anything else this could be?

    Its common for half the H to be missing. Manufactured by New Haven Clock Co.

      I have a few other "NHC" knobs, but have not seen this variation before.

      Thanks

        Sorry to hijack the thread. I bought a rear sight off the internet (private sale). It has a LUX (Lux Clock Works) elevation knob and a DRC (Drudge Brothers Manufacturing Co.) windage knob. The aperture has no stamps, but does have checkering (?) on the rear side of the peep. I can't make out any markings on the sight base (maybe something on the left side, "JJ ^"?). I can not see any markings on the Sight cover.

        Is this a combination that would be found on a production rifle, or is this rear sight likely a Frankenstein?

          LUX weren't production pinion manufacturers, they made post-production replacement parts. DRC were used during production and after.

            sight bases and apertures were not marked unless they were NM, sight covers were not marked except for a a short time in WWII had letter stamped at bottom

              The checkering on the rear sight is there to reduce glare.
