I have a #111 Mod 40 with a fixed rear sight, blued metal, painted lever, and plastic forearm.

Also, a #111 Mod 40 with an adjustable rear sight, blued metal with lots of "age" showing,  a polished al lever, and plastic forearm.

Are they varient 5,6 or neither?

The variation 6 was first to have the plastic forearm with a fixed rear sight. The next variation went to a plastic buttstock (all plastic)  and the return of the adjustable rear sight. If you have one that has the plastic forearm only and an adjustable rear sight, it probably falls between the sixth and seventh variation. Of course stocks, forearms and levers can be easily changed so all kinds of "variations" are possible.
