Hmmmm, just comparing it to mine which does letter. Near as I can tell the front sight dovetail is in the same location as on my rifle. I do have a different front sight. There are no bevels on the end of the barrel as mine is squarely cut. My magazine is about 1/8" back from the muzzle. So from what I can tell from the picture it could be. Mine is .38-56 so it is heavier yet.
