Years ago I won a wonderful old target rifle at an estate sale of the estate of a WWII vet who had been an avid target shooter. That man's name was James A Norton. The rifle was set up for an old style long tube target scope, but one was not included. It did come with a very nice target sight. Amazingly, I recently saw James Norton's target scope at another online auction. I bid on the scope and won it.

Here is Mr. Norton's obituary.

This weapon model is extremely rare. Are you tried to shoot with this gun? The weapon looks good, and it seems like you can install some new rifle scopes on this rifle. We can look at the modern market and try to install some modern rifle scope at this old-school weapon if you are interested. It can be an interesting experience, and maybe this weapon will have more accuracy compared with the modern rifle models. Let me know here or in private messages if you are interested.

I think it's worth buying a new one.

That's the first time I've seen anything like that.
