NRA sporters never had the issue rear sight, and the barrel will not have the cuts for the pins that secure the fixed base of the M1905 sight. NRA sporters were D&T for the Lyman 48 at the armory and that sight was provided.

Note that this is quite different from the NRA-sales Service Rifle of the pre-WW I period.

Resp'y,
