Numerich e-gun parts might have a replacement for that bent front sight that a gunsmith could change out for you if you are ever interested in getting it fixed.
Since my original posting on My Rem. 512 I swapped out the high see-thru rings for some B-square med. ht. rings having a 1" off-set on the rear ring for bolt clearance. It all works like a champ and I'm glad to be able and shoot those nice tight groups again despite my tired old eyes.
