    On the top of the left rail, Bruce. Looks almost like a mark the jaws of a lathe chuck can leave on a work piece. Possibly from a fixture or vise used in the milling process?? I was also thinking it could have gotten there from tools used during a barrel change, or some other GI carbine tool such as for changing the rear sight. - Bob

    Chisel staking could be on either side. It depended on which side was loose. A few of them were staked on both sides! My Inland X-suffix is staked on the left.
    When they tell you to behave, they always forget to specify whether to behave well or badly!

    I doubt that the sight was factory installed. There were six stake marks on this sight two of which are almost in two others The vast majority of factory punch marks are done on the right side and just two punch marks. But someone sure wanted to be sure this sight just did not have a chance to move.

    Bruce, I agree about the rear sight staking on this carbine. Was it you that posted awhile back about the differences between Type 2 and Type 3 rear sights in regard to the area on them meant to be used for staking? It seems like it was in reference to information in a CCNL, but may have been something I read over on the CC Forum. Can you think of a reason why this carbine has nearly a full height front sight on it? Your earlier post sounded like you thought I needed to add height to it, but that would be going in the wrong direction. I have several other pictures of the front sight (different angles and lighting) I can post, if it would help. Thanks! - Bob

    The rear sight could have been restaked at a later date, that would explain the divot patterns. Also, original sights were not always staked the way some newsletter, book or online site says they were. Securing the sight to the dovetail, adjustable or flip, was the most important thing.
