    1893 sight?

    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.

    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

    Thanks! I knew it was an express sight, but no ID on it!
    I'm up in Wisconsin on vacation and I find more cool old guns in these small town gunshops!!
