I am wondering if anybody knows about the sight on the Winchester 45-70.  I know the rifle is from Japan but most of the 86’s have a trang safety..  I ask the dealer if the safety had been disabled and removed but he did not know.

I don’t think the earliest Browning 86’s had the tang safety.

Sight is marked CSA for C. Sharps Arms of Big Timber, Montana.   I guess the only way to know if the rifle was made with a tang safety would be to pull the tang sight.

I call myself a collector as it sounds better than hoarder

I ask the seller if the rifle would safety cock.   All he said was the rifle did not have a safety  I guess that means the sight is installed over the safety. .  I knew this was a new Winchester but have a friend who is looking for a 45-70 to hunt with.
