AGD Sharpshooter?
 
I picked this up via Craig's List in a very nice lot from a player who was active in tournaments in the late 80's / early 90's. It looks very much like the AGD Sharpshooter sight (angles, hardware, surface treatment) except for the lack of branding on the top surface:

...and the mounting hardware:

If not AGD, who else manufactured this type of sight? Any idea what these are worth (methinks the AGD museum exaggerates the scarcity of its old products somewhat)?

Thanks!

Yes, I would think it is a sharp shooter also. I think the branding was light paint over something tougher, so the lettering could disappear or be removed completely.

There weren't a lot of options for such things, and everything else on it matches the AGD product. Most stolen designs from that time show some short cuts or variations and we didn't see a mass marketing of cheap sharp shooters. :)

Yes, it's the short version of the sharp shooter, not the long one.

Most likely the lettering is just worn off... Common.

Exaggeration on AGD's part? Just a tad, we could probably easily come up with 50 of them owned by members on this site pretty quick. I have 3 or 4 myself and even the long version of it.

I'v got a long one. I really like it.

Just quoting this out of context for s & g's... ;)

I gotta tell you guys that I did not expect the thread to devolve into wang jokes until at least page 2.

Between 1 and 5 posts after the appearance of a correct answer is the usual norm actually. It's the MCB equivalent of "I agree". ;)

You may feel free to insert your own wang joke at this point.

I haven't seen mine in a while.
