    I have a Type 1 NM and thats worth more then the others. How much I'm not to sure. I don't have a Blue Book near me right now but you can also look at GunsAmerica, AuctionArms and GunBroker. see what some of those are selling for and do an AV for price.

    Peep sights are amazingly accurate in the right light and with a good consistant weld spot. That was some good shooting on your part too. Are you going to shoot in matches? Have fun and good luck.

    So many people think that scope are the only way to go. To see in poor light during hunting conditions scopes ARE an advantage. When shooting targets, scopes are of little advantage.
    In the National Championships long range event one of the 1000 yard matches is "iron sights" only and the other is "any sight", (including scopes). Some competitors choose to stay with iron sights, some choose to exercise the scope option. There is ZERO difference in the scores. I actually found my scores to be slightly better with iron sights. Mind you, we actually hold our rifles in our hands with no artificial support.
    My favorite service rifle for the 200 yard standing offhand event is the M1. It has the right proportions, right balance, right weight and the long barrel puts the sight far enough forward for my old eyes to focus.
    Enjoy your rifle.
