Has fiber optic front sight. Not sure on year but says 'made in japan' on barrel. It functions & shoots perfectly. I'm looking for a 3x or 4x eotech magnifier with flip out mount & QD or a Glock 21. Would take a different name brand magnifier possibly if you throw in cash and it has a flip out mount. Has black composite stock/pump- which would have cost an additional 150$+. Field model. First $250 cash takes it.
