WTK: 'Hiduminium' Para Rear Sight?

Have this para sight, looks like the every day Sarco variety ... until you pick it up. It is most definitely aluminum and has no markings on it. Seems like somebody cranked down on it pretty hard with the sight screws, but does not look too bad, still very useable. Any ideas on manufacturer?

I do plan on selling/auctioning this piece, just looking for some more info and a fair value assessment. What say the hive?

Old DSA, I don't think they made them very long.. Will probably not work - as you can already see, the adjustment screws don't seat properly on the sight and chew into the too-soft aluminum. I had it happen on two or three of them I had back in the day before I gave up.
. Always wanted to try and come up with a solution for my "ultra light" project, but never seemed to get around to it.

I thik it was their QC beta test that led to their current system

So, worthless then I guess? Not trying to make a mint, was just hoping to trade for an OS frame lock lug
