    Hi Danny; by the pics provided above, it seems she lacks the lock bar rear sights assembly. Is it a T105E1 assembly?

    Yes it's missing the lockbar sight. It seems that a lot of the information on the web points to lock bar sights being used till June 1944. I have been to the springfield armory they have an article about how some were changed in late May.

    Mmmmm... From the information available, the T105E1 assembly was approved between oct/nov 1944, but it is very unlikely that a wartime M1 has been issued with that kind of sights (accordingly, i.e., to B. Canfield's book); maybe some very late specimen, made around May/June 1945, could had the new sights installed, but there's no evidences (pics or documents). I would rather tend to believe in a post war retrofitting; nothing bad, anyway, since finding a matching barrel/receiver is usually the hard job (not to mention the correct stock).
