I got this sight off of an XP I bought last year that the seller "Thought" was unfired. I would like to sell the sight but have no idea as to it's value. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

That is a Thompson-Center Contender sight. Very common - worth maybe $20 - $30

Thanks for the reply. I have taken T/C sights off barrels for 25 years but never came across one that had a pin you had to drive out to get to the mounting screws. Would this be a 1970's type Contender sight ?

I think that every single one of the over a dozen new barrels I purchased in the 80s had this exact sight. Very common, they came with at least three different blade heights to accommodate differing chamberings. Used to have a box full of them since I usually replaced them with better irons or a scope.
