What is the correct rear sight for a 1928 Model 94 Saddle Ring Carbine (SN 1038658)?

Kelly,

The exact same sight that was used on nearly all of the Model 1894 SRCs from day one of production. In later years it was listed as a No. 44A. Many people refer to it as a “Carbine ladder sight”.

I was reading some information about the SRC rear sight.  They indicated that there was a change to the rear sight at around the 1,000,000 serial number.  The older ones were stamped “1873” and the newer ones did not have this stamp.  Is that accurate and were there any other changes to that rear sight?

No, that is not accurate.  The Model 1894/94 Carbine sight was not marked “1873”.  There were a few minor changes were made, with the most notable being a change to the sight notch from a “v” to a “u” shape.

In regards to the No. 44A “carbine ladder sight”, I have seen at least two with different numbers stamped on the ladder for the range.  I’ve seen both a 2 through 9 (on an 1895 38-55 SRC) and a 1 through 20 (on a 1928 30 WCR SRC).  I think they were both original.  Are the different range stamp numbers related to the different calibers?  Is the 1-20 stamping correct for 1928?
