What is the correct rear sight for a model 1895 Sporting Rifle with 24” barrel made in 1900?

It could be a variety of different sights.  Are there any wear marks on the barrel top from a previously mounted rear sight?  Those “ghost marks”, if present, are a clue to what used to be there.

Send a PM to member Ben Tolson–he probably has the correct sight (#22A).

That’s one problem with the directory.  It lists people by the “handle” they use.  Not there actual name.
