I find the sight marking interesting. I've seen 4 other IBM carbines with relatively close serial numbers that I believe were all original and all of them had the GE-Q flip sights. While there is no documentation, it seems obvious that a significant number of those sights were used in a fairly narrow serial number range that this carbine falls into.

My forthcoming late IBM seems to be all-original and the right side of the rear sight is FO B. #3950667. Staked the same way. Will post pictures next week.
