    "The one with 2 or with 6 chambers?"

    ??? Its a rifle, it only has one chamber.

    If you mean the slits on the muzzle brake, I think there were 6.

    The front sight blade appears to have been unchanged from its introduction on the M1871 rifle. When I needed a higher blade for my 1871, I simply put in a K98k replacement blade.
