Default Front sight markings help

Can any one tell me the difference between the R marked Inland front sight and the Rock- Ola R marked front sight?

You bought the Rockola with the front sight marked R on top?

yes I have an R marked sight on a Rock-Ola barrel, but Craig Reich's book says there is a type 1 marked R. So I was wondering how it was marked.

why wouldn't those be a type two or cast if they are a subcontract and on late Inland carbines? were they making type one sights during late Inland production?

I have seen longer blade, front to back, like Winchester and shorter blade, like inland, R marked sights, so did they make both size blades randomly?

The front of the blade starts at the front of the sight. The rear of the blade ends on the center line of the sight, over the pin. Other than machining differences that passed inspection there should not be different blade lengths, "front to back".

Looks like blade was filed to a thicker point down from tip, but the skinny tip, like a point of an inland sight, but it is just as high as the longer looking too of this blade.

I've always read they lost their contract over possible misuse of funds. I guess just another internet rumor.

Possible misappropriation ( again, I reiterate possible ) of funds. It's in a newsletter, you figure it out.

I think you are talking about the filing to zero for the front sight post. All front sight posts were made tall and after it was installed on a carbine, it had to be filed to zero. Since the rear sight and receiver/dovetail could be a slightly different height, to zero, the front post can be filed different.
Usually a with flip rear sight, the post is filed more than with an adjustable rear sight. So just putting an adjustable rear sight on can cause the carbine to shoot high. Many people are looking for new front sights so they can zero there carbine.
