What would be the standard rear sight on an 1885 rifle in 32-40, oct. bbl. ser#2736.

Henry, I think it would be the standard sporting sight.  It has to be one of the early ones without the extra adjustable leaf and screw.

Standard sporting rear--no special sight for this model, if that's what you're getting at.

A Rocky Mountain Sporting sight was standard.

Wouldn't that era sight need to have the serrations on the sides as opposed to smooth sides?  Roger B
