Just purchased a Model 67 in wonderful, original condition. It has the original rear sight and brass bead front sight. Ive not received it yet but should arrive friday. I was wondering for originality sake would you retain the original sights? I like the looks of the 96A rear peep that some of these came with but I’m cautious about changing it at all. Any suggestions or comments appreciated. Not sure how to post pics but have a couple.

If you really want to shoot it with all the accuracy you & it are capable of, do it. You don’t have to throw the original open sight away, sorry as it is.

Winchester made both the 67 and 67A with peep sights if that is what you want. You would need to change both sights to add the rear peep. The Model 68 was made with the peep sights also before it was discontinued (same rifle as the model 67). I think you will find the peep sight sets to far forward to work very well if you change it.

I’ve dabbled a bit with my 67A’s and was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy. The youth model went south to help my brother’s grandkids learn to shot but I checked it out before it went. It’s a shooter! I can’t recall shooting the full-size 67A but I expect it to perform as well as my presbyopic eyes will allow, likely quite a bit better.
