Unlikely. The Alaskan was adopted as the M73 (with crosswire reticle) and intended replace or supplement the Weaver 330C and its military incantation M73B1 on the M1903A4. Unfortunately due to other war work and the inability of Bausch & Lomb to provide the lenses the scopes were not delivered in time fo use on the A4.
Some became available later on and wee used on the M1C but the M73 was quickly modified to the M81/82 configuration with eyeshade and sunshade.
