he!!o all,

Amateur LE enthusiast here, and I recently picked up a 1915 dated LSA No.1 Mk.3. Seen here: https://imgur.com/a/QrdDT

My question regards the absence of wood around the rear sight. It's very uniform, almost as if it's a design detail? Otherwise, I can't find any other images to reference, so am I probably making things up in my head?

Thank you!

Looks like it's been trimmed; probably due to one part being damaged at some point in it's history.
Nice collection you have there.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Yes the "ears" on both the front & rear handguards have been removed. Broken ears was a common problem & the cure was to just tidy up the broken parts.
Rear handguard with ears are still available if you want but front one with them are rarer than rocking horse poo.
