I have used a 1/4″ square of shim stock to tighten some sights. It’s trial and error to get it in the right spot so it tightens where you want it.
When a sight has been driven out in the wrong direction I’ve been able to remedy this by GENTLY peening the top edges of the dovetail back down to where they will hold a sight properly. When the sight is too small for the dovetail I’ve made good use of a small patch of ordinary adhesive (Scotch) tape on the bottom of the sight…but I’ve never had to resort to that on a Winchester.

How did you determine the others were used for salesman “exhibition” shows? Is there a record of this somewhere?
It seems like the most logical explanation.
There are brief notes or comments in the Remarks section “NY Ex”, “PHIL Ex” etc.

Out of curiosity what is Your description for the configuration of this rifle with 8 extra factory features, “deluxe or semi-deluxe”.
I prefer not to categorize as deluxe or semi deluxe as the factory did not categorize as such and it also involves too many variables. Also, I never counted the number of extra features as that could be open to interpretation as well.
It’s best just to describe a rifle as to what it contains and the interpretation of a feature as “extra” or the interpretation of a rifle as being “deluxe” or “semi deluxe”, being subjective in itself, can be determined, or avoided, by each individual.
Now, on the other hand, if I was trying to purchase this rifle, I might describe it as ordinary, possibly semi deluxe; if I wanted to sell it, I would definitely describe it as deluxe, and then some…
