Has anyone figured out a simple repair for the rear sight when the elevation screw is stripped?

I am kicking myself for having my choice of 1/2 dozen at a big guns shop at a ridiculous low price and I only bought one.

I am trying to get a manufacture date on it because I suspect it is a first year and since I was born that year and in the middle of that worlds record shooting event with the Nylon, I'd like to verify it.

The date is a two letter code located on the barrel in front of the rear sight on the left side. First letter is the month, second is the year.

Here is a link to how to date them....

I still have a Black Nylon 66 with stainless steel barrel and receiver. Got it when I was a kid around 9 years old. Love it. Still shoots accurate.

Could be an early first year rifle, pretty nice. Does it had a thumb screw type windage knob or a tiny little slotted screw? The big head screw is on early rifles. The small head was introduced 1964ish.
