The front sight is 3/4 in wide and also came on it and I know the cylinder is a wide base.

The other rifle is my Jan 42 mixmaster with CMP stock and has a wide base WW II cylinder on it. At least thatís what I believe because it was sold to me by a gentleman on the forum that is very knowledgeable and thatís what he said it was.

Thanks in advance for the help.
Apparently either nobody knows anymore than you do or you are being ignored, which I find hard to believe!
