The meaning of the A on the front sight means that the earlier rear sight V shaped sights was replaced with one that featured a squared U shaped rear sight.

The sling is an original sling that was used by the French on these firearms.

I have never seen a buttstock modified like this before, very interesting feature, maybe one of members has seen this type of modification, it must have had a purpose.

To tighten the barrel band, get a little sliver of wood, shaped it to fit the contour of the wood on the stock and then file that piece till the barrel band fits snugly.

The hole in the buttstock is a normal feature, this is where the stock was held while in the stock replication machine during manufacturing of it.
