Default Your opinion:

Do these flip sights look like original USGI? I appreciate the help.

I like 'em. There's one I'd look closer at to be positive.
If any are for sale I'd like to have the U & BR.

ETA: There are some tells on pic 8 of 9 that intrigue me. Wonder why they're still so dirty? good close up pics, though.
ETA: And look how thick the spring looks on pic 5.

I recently met a retired Metalergist who worked for Boeing. I brought up the topic of the carbine, metal stamping and counterfeit parts. He told me the hardest thing to do in faking metal parts is the look of aged metal. He advised that a fresh stamping on old metal would stand out like a sore thumb.
