Hi Everyone,

Was wondering if someone could tell me the best place to get a period correct front sling swivel for my 99r manufactured around 1952? Bought it with out the swivel. Also, if I put a receiver sight on it will I have to remove the rear sight?

Thanks,
Tex

52 99R would have had sling eyes and hooks. Only place I have found them so far is eBay. My 53 99R has a folding rear sight, so it is not an issue with my redfield 70LH tang receiver sight. Here is a picture of hooks and eyes.






The problem is they are also correct for early winchesters, so they can be rather expensive.

Thank you. I know what to look for now. The rear sight on mine does not flip down. I have a 60s model weaver scope that I may put on it. Love the rifle. Thanks again! 99s forever!
