    M1 NM rear sight

    Looking for some helping in clearing up when the NM rear sight first came about. I have a NM marked rear sight base with LUX pinion, "W" marked windage knob,NM 520 rear aperture. Also rolling around in parts box have BME & LPR marked windage knobs both marked NM. No pic's still sorting out how to post can email if that would help.

    Those are some nice parts, Gary!
    Feel free to email me the photos and I can post them later when I get home from work if you'd like.
    Cheers,

          The NM .062 front sight came along first in 1957, 1958 the rear non-hooded apertures .520/.595, 1959 along came the NM marked base and windage knob, the 1/2MOA elevation disk didn't came out until 1960 it was non-issued but authorized. The NM/2A didn't arrive until 1962.

            Phil,
            Thanks for the info. There is a guy I get parts from who got some from a 2112 who has passed. I believe he has a dozen of the rear sight disc in his parts box. Will have to check had some in the pass and sold them off. I believe Brian aka JD picked up a couple.

                Just too be clear, it was authorized but non-issued and over the years I'm sure there have been many makers some good and some not so good. I have one that was given too me from a former Air Force shooter I know its not a commercial pick up but it isn't machined very well either. the best I can say is that it is flat with serrations .

                  Phil,
                  The disc that I have had came off Camp Pendleton from a retired 2112. I sent a couple over to Nez aka Bamban and he put them on a couple of his match rifles. He said they were very nice and did a Thread I believed on M14 Forum. You might want to contact him. I will check to see if I one left and see if Brian will post a pic of it.

                    I don't doubt you at all, Nez and I are good friends. The one I have came from some unknown Gov't vender and clearly mine isn't very well done. The serrations on my disk are almost twisted like a sea shells spiral, odd and neat at the same time. One side is MOA and the second is 1/2 MOA. It also has a purpleish cast-hue, obviously when it was finished the tanks were too hot, the part was made from a very hard alloy or the part was too small and over heated in the tank, flip a coin. I've kept mine for two reasons it was a gift and the unique novelty, if I had paid money for it I would have sent it back. ‚Äč

ID:	6110 here are a couple pics of the disc that Gary got. One side is 1/2 moa, the other is 1 moa. Looks fairly nice, but I have nothing to compare to as these are the only ones I have ever seen in person. Sorry for the picture quality, I am not a photographer in the least. Hope these are what you want Gary.

                              Shaun,
                              Thanks for posting. Your missing the M1 thumb though. You will have to work on that.
