Makes sense. I haven't really been able to find anything in photos that is the same. The damn thing does look to form to the original sight perfectly. I'm thinking a half ass job installing it. Now I just have to figure out if I keep it on there or try to find original parts to make it right again. I suppose it could technically be tapped on the other side or fastened in some way so it does not move around. Even with the screw tightened it is still movable and sits on an angle with the slightest movement.

Nothing wrong with that. I'm going to take this one out this year for rifle and see if I can take a deer with it. Some may say I'm nuts to take this rifle out in the woods, but that's what It is for.

Oh I'd absolutely do the same thing. What ammo did you end up using?

I have 3 Pre 64 Model 94's in 30-30, that I would not hesitate to take out deer hunting, but the one with a Lyman peep sight would be my first choice, over the other 2 with the Buck Horn sights.

Have not shot it yet. Will do when I get this sight situation handled. Going to be hard to sight in if the aperture moves every time it fires. I had honestly thought of JB Welding the damn thing in place and making sure it was secured completely.

Before anyone shoots a fireball at me for the JB Weld thing, remember that the original sight has pieces missing and a hole has been drilled in it that isn't supposed to be there in the first place. At least if the sight addition were secured it would be usable.

Not a Winchester but my 336 Marlin shoots great with 170 grain Winchester (and Federal IIRC).

My one and only deer was taken with a 1958 Model 94 with buck horns. I can see where the peep would be a little better though.

And would that rifle happen to be for sale today?
