Remington 521-T Junior Special missing Lyman part

Here's another rifle from my father-in-laws estate - it's a 521-T but I believe it's missing a part to the Lyman sight (noticeable in the 3rd photo) - are these parts still available?

I got a real kick out of the instruction manual parts page - most of the parts are listed at 15 cents (not sure the photo is clear enough to read that)

Any thoughts on what this rifle might be worth? thanks in advance for any advice,
-dave

    Any apature should work, because most have the same thread. Look on the auction side or other sites

    Don't worry about the missing aperture. They are a $10 to $15 item and as Dokey said most will fit the ;threaded hole in the sight. The apertures come with different size holes and different overall disc sizes. I would let the buyer get the one that suits him. The rifle can be shot fairly accurately by just aiming through the threaded hole.

    "and as Dokey said most will fit"...........I wish, there are several thread paterns, check with your local gunshops. or if you sell, sell it as/is.

    Thanks for the replies guys - I'll clean it up with some ballistol as suggested in another thread and sell as-is.

    thanks again,

    Apertures'N'More has replacements to fit it for $10. Worth $300 to $450 depending on how the stock cleans up in my opinion. I use TruOil to touch up these Remington stocks. Usualy blends in almost perfect. Wipe on bad places and immediately wipe off. If you let it dry it will be shiney and not match. Wipe off right away and usualy matches well. Won't hurt to go over the whole stock. Will remove dirt also.
