Mine is set up the same way, to include the Scout Scope mount (Brownells)


Since I have 1-4x scope mounted I'm not that worried about if needing BUIS. Although.. if I did I'm sure someone sells a minimum Picatinney rear sight and it would just need a banded front sight for emergencies. The scout scope mount covers where the old rear sight would have been mounted.

I believe the point Tom was trying to make is that there is no such thing as a P17 (British Pattern 17) rifle. The American nomenclature is - US rifle, Model of 1917.

A lot of people know what is being referred to when they see "P17" and just brush it off. To some folks it's like hearing nails on a chalkboard though and it drives them nuts!
