I don’t know, Griff . . . .

I’ll have to ask our “22 cal. Springfield” guru, Herschel Garner.

He frequents this forum from time-to-time.

Per both Brophy's and Campbell's books, the first 6000 Model of 1922 MI issue rifles used the 1903 NM butt plate. In 1926, they started using the 1922 issue butt plate without the trapdoor. This butt plate was used on all issue type stocks until the end of production in 1942. Both butt plates were 12 line per inch. I believe the normal 1903 checkered butt plate was 20 lines per inch. I also do not believe the 1922 issue butt plate was officially used on any 1903 variant.

1903 Checkered Butt Plate - 1910

1903 NM Butt Plate - 1925

1922 Issue Butt Plate - 1926

Excellent info! Story is my 03 was built as a HP match rifle back in the day and was D&T for a Lyman long slide 48 rear sight. It ha the original 12/43 RA barrel and shoots very well with the repro Hi-lux 8x scope. Thanks for the info

Griff557, The original Lyman 48 sight with the elevation scale numbered to 150 was, and still is, referred to as the long slide. The early Lyman 48C and 48S (S has the windage scale behind the aperture) has the elevation scale numbered to 125.
A bit of trivia that lots of people don't know. Even more probably don't care.

I love the wealth of knowledge here…you learn something new every day. My Lyman 48 appears to a “S” model the elevation scale goes to 125 and the windage scale is behind the aperture so approximately how old is the sight

Prior to about 1925 the Lyman 48 had one minute elevation clicks. It easy to recognize as there are 5 clicks to each full revolution of the elevation knob. When the 1922M1 came out it was equipped with the Lyman 48C that had half minutes of elevation. I am not sure exactly when Lyman went to the half minute clicks. The Lyman 48S and 48C were in production until WWII, maybe later. Not a precise answer but the best I can do.
