Does it have the slider on top to allow light to hit the crosshairs and make them light up?

There is a small amount of information on the Dockendorff sights in Nick Stroebel's book on antque gunsights. Unfortunately, my copy of the book is not handy at the moment. I will repost later this evening or in the early morning hours. Is there something specific your are looking for?

OK, the information is on page 142. According to the information, the Dockendorff Gunsight Company made sights circa 1950. The 1950 catalog page shows five different sights. My bet is that your sight is a B-400 or a B-03. Both have a standard dovetail on the bottom of the sight, but the B-03 has a slightly elevated base. The B-400 listed for $5.75, and the B-03 listed at $6.00. Nick's book was published in 1998, and he had the Dockendorff sights estimated at $25 - $50.

Trap... I did not sell that Dockendorff sight to you, Bill did! You need to get your butt over to the next Big Reno show, and show Bill what you did to the Mauser action he gave you.

I don't know any details of the company but I have a Dockendorff floating gold bead front sight of that type. They also made an open rear sight with wheel adjustment for elevation instead of the usual sliding notched wedge.

I will asume that the A-03 predates the B-03, but is similar. Unfortunately, there is very little published information on those unique old sights made by the smaller companys.
