It's an EGIs the rifle a "R" model or a "EG" ??
Love it!1956 my dad and I both bought '99s .300. My dad got the RS and I got the EG. I put his rear peep sight on mine and he put a scope on his. We both hunted with them. I don't know which killed more deer but they were both right on. They were both in excellent shape when I put them both away in my safe, after my dad's death. I didn't even think about them until recently when my 16 year old grandson needed a gun for this years hunt in PA. We hit grandpa's safe and out popped his great grandad's 99RS. We took it out and test fired it and it shot just as accurate as when I put it away 25 years ago. I hope that he gets as much enjoyment out of it as my dad did.
Any gunsmith can drill you two holes in the front bridge.I have a Model 99 in .300 Savage that I would love to put a scope on. It now has a Lyman peep sight. My little 2.5 to 7 power Leupold would be perfect. Do you know where I could get the receiver tapped for the mounts? Thanks, KQ
