Wide base Gas Cylinders were used from August 1943 to end of production. Wide base cylinders vary from narrow base in that they are wider on sight base area so there is visible overhang so sight can be moved left or right without overhang. Narrow base cylinders have same sight base width as front sight so any movement of front sight caused overhang.
