I know that the last 10,000 model 63’s had a grooved receiver. However, were they ever offered with a factory tapped receiver for a lyman 56?

While this is not a definitive answer, I have not ever seen one.

Possibly through a special order since several 56 codes are correct for the Model 63. That would be very difficult to determine w/o some form of accompanying documentation. (original factory order; purchase letter; correspondence; receipt; etc., etc.)
I’ve handled Model 63’s in both rifle and carbine versions, early and late, grooved and non-grooved, but I also can’t recall seeing one with a receiver sight or tapped for one.
I did see a deluxe 03 with receiver sight not too far back in years. I assumed it was an after-market application… maybe not?
Interesting question. Maybe someone else will chime in.

No, The 63 was not offered that way. Special order could have happened, you will need lots of documentation if you want anyone to believe it.
