I posted in the sight forum with no response. Does anyone have any information or knowledge about metric marked 44A sights? A friend has a 1892 td rifle in 44wcf with such a sight. The sight appears original to the gun. The gun has typical markings. Thanks.

Does it look like this one? Ian McCollum discussed French Military ordered 94s with this sight on his website.

Others on the forum may know more about them.

That’s the one. Is yours on one of the French 94s? Thank you!

Mark,

It is not mine. Just simply a screen shot of the one on Ian’s webpage.

I wish I knew more about them. I’ve never come across any that I recall.

Sincerely,

Maverick

That is an early WW I French Contract Model 1894 Carbine, most likely imported to Canada in the early 1960s.

I found an old bulletin article from American Society of Arms Collectors that discusses the 94s in further detail. See link below.

I do wonder why your friend’s 92 has this rear site.

Sincerely,

Maverick
