So, what is it and could it be factory original?

Model of rifle and date of manufacture to be revealed later.

Sure it could be, it’s a Lyman #6 & often used by factory on guns equipped with tang or rcvr sights.

Okay, very good.  It’s on a Winchester 1892 rifle in .25 – 20 manufactured in 1896.  Yes, this rifle has a tang sight.
