I have an A1 upper (Bushmaster I think) and both rear sight aperatures are the same size. Is this correct or was one not drilled out?

That is the correct site for the A1. If you look, one leg will be marked with a number (300?, sorry it's been many years since I've had my A1) and is the long range leg. It is drilled at a different height to adjust for range.

One leg is marked with a 'L'. Use this aperture for zeroing at 25METERS (27yards 1 foot), and for shooting at 375M and beyond.

After zeroing you flip to the unmarked sight for a 250M zero.

This assumes you have a 20" rifle - ranges are different for the carbine.

As Jonnie pointed out both apertures are the same size.

Yep, they are both the same size holes. The long distance aperture is marked with an "L".
