I saw this Steve. It is interesting. Anyone seen this configuration before? If it was in 32 special I would be tempted.

I believe I’ve seen it before but not sure if it was later in production. What I recall was earlier than 1933. But I’m not a huge 94 collector.

Al – awesome 92 carbine – the Lyman receiver sight and no ring note in the ledger made my day. Anymore, a 92 carbine which is correct, high condition, special sights and letterable is a rarity. Look at the wood to metal fit on your gun – that is the way Winchester fit them! Then look at the wood to metal fit, condition and non-letterable configuration of the 94 in this thread – I personally do not like that 94 even if it is rare.

Al – that is an amazing 92 – high condition – no sight seat – Lyman receiver sight – and it all letters!  Wonderful!

Does your Marlin have a Lyman No. 21?

Yes Steve, it has a Lyman 21, but Marlin ledgers don’t list sights

CJ – with the deleted sight seat, there’s no question in my mind that your Marlin was shipped with the No. 21 from the factory.  I had one Marlin with a Lyman No. 21 – a M1895 .40-70 (super scarce in the M95) along with special order half magazine, shotgun butt.  It had a nice amount of blue and a good bit of case color on the lever.  It’s one I should have never let go Frown

Steve, Marlin records are poor as they rarely mention sights, engraving, checking, butt plates. Yes! I would have kept that 95! Hard to find nice ones

CJ –

I’ve seen examples of this over and over.  I think for the Winchester guys who only buy rifles where all features letter – they would have a tough time being a Marlin collector.
