    Zoomed waaay up on the side of the base I 'think' I see letter impressions.
    But it's not uncommon for me to see things
    One thing, it sure seems to appear that sight has been there a long time.
    Maybe years of dried Cosmo/Oil/ RLO filled in the letters. We've seen it before.
    And unmarked Leafs were reported, not common but were reported.

    Does your camera have a Macro setting? (a little flower symbol) I get my best minute details using that setting. A tip from my ole buddy Harlan.

    The camera is smarter than I am.

    The camera is a FujiPix S3200. I've looked on their website and they don't even list it. It is 11 years old. It did take a pic of the T on the front sight. There's an R there also, but the glare is hiding it. No luck on getting the sight clean, but I just don't see any marking there. I'll keep trying. Charlie, is there a reason you think March/April 44 is when it was made? You know much more than I do, but 2nd block Rockola's were from Nov 43 to Mar 44, and this one seems to be right in the middle of the 200,000. Did they not make all 200,000? I know many times serial numbers were not assembled sequentially. If you could help improve my knowledge, it would be appreciated. Side note, my wife heard me talk about your reference to the War Baby book, and wanted to get it for me as a "love gift", Until she saw the price. I guess I'll have to get it myself.

    I looked too, and was surprised their website skipped over your model. I have a Fuji but don't use it very often because I'm not real familiar with the menus on it. Mine has macro and "super" macro settings. I looked at the manual for the model numbers just under, and just over yours - I bet either one is close enough to work for you. Here's a link to the page I was on. - Bob

    I used fellow CCCF member Jack P's (Algorithm) Spread Sheet PDF put together from all know information on known serial numbered Carbines.
    I clicked on the closest Rock Ola serial number to yours that had a date.
    Be sure to read the Spread Sheet on how the Data is collected.

    Thank you Bob. Your link and suggestion took me to S3900 which is also the manual for the S3200. It told me what I've been doing wrong. It says to use the macro setting with a tripod(I don't have a tripod)or else your pic will be blurry, which is what I keep having happen. The macro/flower button has been there the whole time. I just didn't see it. Charlie asked me if I had one 5 years ago when I got my Winchester. I didn't think I did. Hopefully, new knowledge brings better results. Thanks again.

    Thank you Charlie, that's some really useful information. There's a carbine 147 numbers before mine. 4,585,696 mine is 4,585,843. I'll try to get the rear sight cleaner so I can take better pictures with my newfound knowledge of my camera.

    The best I can get, I think

    Tried again with the camera steadied. Do you have the link so I can copy Data sheets again? I moved back to Wyoming since I bought the Winchester and lost the extras I had.

    The cameras usually have a "Super Macro" setting that you get by just holding down the Macro button. It can be 4-5" from the object but anything done free hand and not blurry is pure luck. Most of these cameras are returned because they are just too complicated to use. The Cannon manuals are books.

    Is that a faint R?

    I was looking......again, at the rear sight, I got down to seeing minute striations from machining I guess. no letters, but I was also looking at the barrel band. Is that a faint "R"?
