Your friend most probably has a post-1925 Model 1920/20 - which has a slightly heavier bbl & a redesigned stock with different checkering than the earlier version(s), and QD sling swivel eyes ILO the previous non-detachable sling loops.

The gun's weight at that time was increased from 5lb, 14oz to 6-3/4lbs (half in the stock, half in the bbl) to increase the accuracy with 180gr .300 Sav boolits.

The issue 24" .300 Sav bbl's weren't dovetailed for an open rear sight when the factory supplied a Lyman 54 peep sight on the rifle.

All models were set up for clip-loading, even though their chamberings were AFAIK never offered loaded in enbloc clips.
