Answer #1. No, they aren't the same.
Answer #2. The 600 Remington came with a nylon rib and the sights were mounted on that, the 788 is standard sights mounted on barrel. Like a fool, I removed my rib and gave it away, using a V-7 Weaver. Many a deer and a few bears were taken with the 18" barrel woods rifle. I still have the gun, wish I had the rib and sights.

If your gun doesn't have little sleeves silver solder to the barrel you can not remount a rib if you could find one. Sights mounted on the barrel would be extremely high to clear the receiver.
