Very nice Winchesters, and the bore condition make them all the better!
I don't think I've ever seen a rear sight quite like the one on the 1890...close but different. What type of sighting notch does it have and are there any markings on it?
A close up picture or two would be very interesting.
Thanks for posting the pictures.

Looks like some nice .22s. The condition on the 22 WRF 1890 with a mint bore besides is really nice. The woodwork looks like it's in real good shape.
The rear sight is marked PAT. JAN. 1901
I take this sight to be a 30B. This gun was manufactured in 1907. The modification to these sights was made in 6/24/08 by cutting the longitudinally slot through the adjusting screw hole. ( The Sight Book - George Madis - page 88 )
The little washer has likely been added by a previous owner ❓
