The big difference is the type of front sight. The Hornet used a 77 style banded sight. Not many out there and if the seller knows what he has , you will pay a premium for it.

What I expected ! :)


Isn't that the way it always goes? :lol:

I tried finding one online and came up empty handed. I was going to pick one of these up a while back and never did. Got sidetracked chasing down other "items of interest". It basically has the same front sight on it as the centerfire 77's do. A very nice touch to make it more like it's big brothers vs. the rimfire models. If I recall correctly they were only offered in the RS version for maybe the first two years of Hornet production.

When this subject was brought up in the past Hawkeye had some great input about the numbers and collectible status of these rifles.
