This is the first Marbles flexible tang sight I’ve actually seen , other than in books. I found it in a box of other fine Winchester sights etc. at the Calgary show on Easter weekend. It came along with a pretty nice deluxe ’94. Does anyone know, Approximately what years were they offered on the ’94?20230416_191433.jpgImage Enlarger20230416_191440.jpgImage Enlarger20230416_191449.jpgImage Enlarger20230416_191529.jpgImage Enlarger

Henry, according to Stroebel, this sight was shown in the Marble”s 1905 catalog through at least the 1934 catalog.  He lists this W1S is for the 25-35, 30-30 and the 32 SPL. The W2S was for the 32-40 and 38-55.

Looks like a good fit for your gun…

The sight is marked 32 special but notice the box is marked 25/35, 30/30 and 32 Special. I don’t ever recall seeing one of these sights on a 25/35 or 30/30, have any of You.

Box has nothing to do with sight, which is Win not Lyman.  Box is for Lyman #1 tang sight, made in or after 1899, as that was the yr the #2 tang sight was introduced.

Easter gunshow?  No, it was actually “Christmas morning” for you to obtain that box of goodies!  Let’s just say it was easily a “grand” day for sure!
