Since I also have a Series 180, Mini-14, in additiion to my Series 580's, that would be a nice rear sight to get ahold of...

Anybody know what it is? Ever seen it or what?

That is a "southport" mini 14. First 1000 or so were made with a garand style rear sight, front gold bead, and walnut stock - so I've read. I understand Bill was trying for a government contract, but when he didn't get it the less expensive sights and stock were installed.

Tech Sights for the older Mini-14's look and function almost exactly like those...
