This old “hunter” is being auctioned at 

https://bid.landsboroughauctions.com/Winchester-Model-94-Lever-Action-32WS-Rifle_i52896362

I am not really interested in purchasing but its honest “looks” appeal to me.

The description doesn’t say but the tang sight seems to be a Lyman, No. 1 perhaps ?

The rear sight was replaced and reads “Marble’s Gladstone Mich. USA”, any ideas about the vintage of this sight ?

The front blade seems also replaced and looks to be unusually tall, is that because of the Lyman ?

Are peep sights common on carbines ?  Would it add much precision on a 20″ barrel ?

Saddle ring is gone, perhaps removed on purpose if original owner was a dedicated hunter.  

Serial 451875, .32 Win

Not sure how to edit the title of a topic, I meant to write Lyman, not Lymam

No doubt this old gun has been there & done that.   Tang sight adds precision to ANY brl.  But gun sure doesn’t need non-original rear sight, that interferes with use of tang sight.

It’s a .32 Special carbine in poor condition with replacement sights.  It’s if little value, except as a shooter.  But, if you want a shooter, better to get a .30 WCF instead as, unless you reload, the cost of .32 Special ammunition is prohibitive.

That’s a valid point.  I just can’t get my head around not being a hand loader.  I know some guys don’t reload but I can’t imagine not doing it.  Aside from the financial savings (which is substantial), it’s a very interesting and rewarding hobby.  Cool

I like what Clarence wrote: … this gun has been there & done that.  Very suggestive … this carbine “lived” the way it was meant to live.

Anyhow, including fees, taxes, and CAD-USD conversion, for the record it sold for $621 USD, before shipping.

I hope whoever bought it will keep it as is and not bring it to the esthetician surgeon.

Not a bad price, considering tang sight is worth $150 or more.  Out of the half-doz ’94s I once had & sold, the only one I kept for myself, & still have, is one not too much better than this one.
