Also; while I was aware of the different sizes; I did not know that the "zero" blade was exactly 1" above the centre line of the barrel. Makes sense when you think about it. Thanks for posting that.

To complicate further - look at the picture of the rear sights.

You will note that the sights themselves are 'assemblies' of a variety of components.

For example look at the Mk4 sight ………..
The 'body' (leaf) of the slide is a Mk3 'body'. Many people would read this as it being a Mk3 rear sight.

The 'body' (Leaf) of the Mk3 sight is a MKII (Mk2) and many people would suggest that this is a Mk2 rear sight - BUT the Mk2 is the simple 'Flip over' sight.

The devil is in the detail.
