+1 on the Lyman.

I prefer the Lyman over Williams in part b/c don't need a screwdriver handy to adjust elevation.
(williams uses a setscrew to lock the elevation adjustment)

Brownells sells a gib lock thumbscrew, SKU 962-000-079. If your sight has target knobs, no need for a screwdriver to adjust the sights.

Only the Williams Target Foolproof, which was OEM on the 541X. The Mossberg S100 will only work on Mossbergs and the other Redfields all use a 10-32 mounting screw; the Redfield 75 uses a 8-40 mounting screw. If you miss out entirely, I'd get a Lyman 90 MJT. Both it and the Williams Target Foolproof are still in production. The Lyman is a better sight, IMHO.

Late breaking CMP rumor/poop:

Hmmm, I see no Redfield Palma listed on estore

What? I just got the email from CMP this evening that said the sights were available! And they said they were to "reserve" some for the folks that just bought rimfires this last go around.

Someone sent me this pic a while back of a Redfield Olympic mount for a 40X modified to fit on a 513T:

There are also a couple other interesting options for Redfield sights on the 513T. First is a "high" base. Redfield made a base stamped RT-HIGH that raises the Redfield 75 rear sight about a 1/4" above the height of the standard base. The comb on the 513T is pretty tall. This base helps a bit with making the 513T more of a man sized rifle. The taller base also lets you use the 513T w/75 out to +100yds.

Redfield also made a 513T base that allows you to mount an Olympic rear. Don't have the number offhand, but I have one.

Both of these are hard to find, but come up every so often on FleaBay.
