All are type l. None have any code stamped on them.

The middle and right are. I don’t think the left is.

I’ve noticed another trait of WRA sights. The bottom of the loop will have a sort of hump in it. You’ll see it if you look at them head on.

CCNL 230-9 has a drawing of the Win sight features.

That hump may not be a consistent feature over carbine production.

Yes, Dan,
I reviewed ccnls58,188,336,32,268,343,40,230, and 372. A lot of vagueness and subtlies, but I'll get there. Thanks.
