Identifying 'Interesting or Collectible' Antique Rifle Sights

There is not a specific forum the forum for this.

I thought this sub-forum may be a good place to start.

Bought an auction lot yesterday with a box full of loose sights. Most are readily identifiable and/or common types. Buckhorn, ramp front, etc.
A half a dozen or so are 'interesting' and appear to be of an age that they are likely 'collectible'.

There HAS to be forum online for this topic, but I seem unable to find it.

Thank you for any help!

Only one is marked as to maker. It is a Mossberg.
Suspect tracking it down will be 'easy', but the others are unmarked as to maker.

The kind of rounded over aperture sight that is in the upper right corner of the 1st and 4th pictures looks a little like one I have seen on a foreign target rifle but for the life of me I can't remember which one.

In 100 years who of us will care?
An armed society is a polite society!
Just because they say you are paranoid doesn't mean they are not out to get you.

SAKO.

Another forum gave me the maker, and Google turned up this website.

Great. Knew I'd seen that one before.

Thank you for the help.

I have tracked down maker/model of all but the front sight.

So are you going to post a picture with the proper maker ID for each sight that would be really nice

The front sight is off an Anschutz .22.

Actually, I believe the front sight is off a Mossberg 151 .22 rifle.
