Bill, I’m no 75 expert, but my 1939 Winchester parts book shows the following:
Vaver 1175 front used with Vaver 3875 Receiver sight
Lyman 77 front used with Lyman 58E Receiver sight
Redfield 63 front used with Redfield 75HW Receiver sight.
There is no listing for the 75 in the 1938 parts book.

Sorry if this has been asked before but the system would not let me do a search on “Winchester 75” it didn’t like that 75 was only two “letters”.
Can someone tell me what type of front sights would have come on a 1938 Winchester 75 Target Rifles?
Thanks in advance! Bill
More than likely a Winchester stamped steel M99-A. That’s what is on my #282. Big Larry

I have a Winchester 75 target with a 3 digit serial no. made in 1938. It has a rear sight marked Redfield and a hooded front sight with an aperture inserted. No markings on the front sight. Is it possible these are the original sights?
Yes, it is possible. The 75 Target was initially offered with the Redfield 75HW rear receiver sight and Redfield 63 front globe sight. The pre-WWII catalog number for that rifle/sight combination was G7547R.
A few pictures would help us confirm for sure.
