Just picked up an 1893 in .25-36. It has a fold leaf sight and standard RM front sight. Was the an after market sight??
It's been redone at some point and the bore is in good shape. Made in 1894.
Also picked up an 1873 Winnie in .38-40 in pretty much original condition, and the bore is OK, will have to see how it shoots. IMG_0144.jpgIMG_0152.JPGIMG_0151.JPG
Congratulations Al on a nice score! 2 nice guns! I think you have a Winchester Express sight often seen on 1894s with tang sights, their in the old catalogs, I have a few with it. It is a Winchester manufactured sight. Marlin didn’t have one like it, but did offer the Lyman express and often seen on Marlins with tang sights
I picked up a 1893 30-30 carbine that had a L.L. Hepburn sight on it (I basically bought the rifle for the sight). I left the sight on the rifle and am putting a new stock on it. I picked up a reproduction sight that is a work of art that I put on my 1893 25-36 rifle. If it was made after approximately 1902 (I may be off by a year or two) it will have the two holes at the back of the receiver for that sight. Great looking rifle, much nicer than mine!
This one isn't drilled for the Hepburn sight, I believe it was made in 1897. The .30-30 I picked up is drilled for it! Where did you get the repo sight?? I've got a Skinner on my .32-40 but one like the original Hepburn would be cool!!
This one has been reblued, and not done that well. A lot of the lettering is buffed off/thin. Waiting for the weather to cool down so I can shoot it.
