Winchester 94 top eject questions.

I've got an old, hand-me-down M94 that I loved years ago, Until.......

It slid down the wall, landed with a crash and broke the Lyman 56 on the receiver.

It's kind of sat, unused and unloved for several years. I tried another peep, but it shoots low if I recall correctly even at full adjustment.

So, assuming this were YOUR gun and you wanted to bring it back to shooting form, would you:

A. Have a new front sight installed to bring impact to Point of aim?

B. Break out the dollars and buy a Lyman 56 and bring it back to original condition?

Currently, I'm leaning towards B.

B. That sight is common and easy to find.

Re: Winchester 94 top eject questions.

I know, I've seen a bunch on fleabay. I'll probably buy one, soon.

Got an 11 year old that want to shoot a deer this fall and I'm sure that his great-grandfather would smile to see yet another generation take a deer with that rifle...

Re: Winchester 94 top eject questions.

Ok, another question on this....

I'm not finding a good 56a sight on eBay right now.. Yeah, I know, wait 5 minutes, right?

Anyway, finding a lot of 66a sights.

Is there a significant difference between the two?

Re: Winchester 94 top eject questions.

Why does it need to be a Lyman? Just preference?

Well, I can't make it hit zero with the Williams that is currently on it.

Lyman is the sight my grandfather put on it, so maybe a bit of nostalgia, but I'm not dead-set on a Lyman.

The scope of your choice on offset mounts.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Do offset mounts require any gunsmithing or is it a 'garage' type job?

Drilling and tapping?
