I am researching a Model 1894 that was manufactured in 1905.  It is a take-down model rifle in 30 WCF.  It includes a Lyman peep sight.  My question is what are the correct front and rear sights for the original gun.  I’ve seen other rifles with Lyman peep sights where I believe the original rear sight was replaced with a folding sight (I assume to remove it from the line of sight between the peep sight and front sight).

Kelly,

The standard sights for a 1905 production Model 1894 were a No. 21 Sporting front sight, and either a No. 26 Sporting rear or a No. 22 series Flat top sight.
