Dave, I don't know. To be completely frank, I don't "like" that front sight. Base seems just slightly "off profile", I THINK it is set back just a hair too far, it also seems a tad too tall, and there is something definitely not right with the blade. Add in that the barrel and sight base color and patina do NOT appear to match (and they should) plus having the remnant of a "P" at the receiver, I am of the opinion that that barrel may not be an original carbine component. If you can, I'd have it looked by someone who can lay a known original side-by-side for comparison.

I do realize that is not what you wanted to hear, and, I certainly could be wrong. Pictures can sometimes be misleading, from distortion, lighting, etc.
