'Sergio' - Welcome to the KCA Forum!

The sight that you pictured appears to be a Redfield 102K, intended as a 'no-drill' Receiver-Sight, for the Left-Side of a U.S. Krag.

It looks like someone has simply screwed in the 'aperture' on the wrong side of the slide!

The bottom of the 'Slide' for the 102K has a small "k" stamped on it.

To mount on a Krag, the 102K sight requires a longer 'side-plate screw'.

Redfield originally provided such a screw with the sight.

Mounted on the rear of the sight is a little sheet-metal bracket that hooks into the cut-off lever opening.

A replacement side-plate screw can be fashioned from a Krag or 1903 Springfield 'sling-swivel or stacking-swivel' screw. Reproduction swivel screws are available. (Thread size is approximately .186"X26TPI).
