I came across this antique Model 94 currently offered on Gunbroker. The seller states it had a Redfield peep sight added, which makes sense because it's not listed on the Cody letter in the auction. I'm not familiar with Redfield sights so my questions are: 1) Can anyone discern type/model of this sight, and 2) At what point in time was this particular sight available to attach to a rifle (i.e., when did it become "period correct"? My brief research points me in the direction of 1930s - 1950s but am asking those far knowledgeable than I to share their opinions.

It looks like a Redfield 102 and I think you are right about the 1930 and beyond date. I guess the more important factor is that the rifle was drilled and tapped for this sight. I think its a really cool ELW semi deluxe short rifle, but the D&T really hurts the value. If it doesn't bother you, then its probably a good buy at the current bid on a rifle with so many special order options. I like the configuration too and had been watching this one myself. Sometimes I look at it as being a good opportunity to own a unique variation of a rifle that would likely be another $1000 or more if it were not D&T'd. If its an appealing rifle to you, then it will likely be for someone else later on if you decided to sell it.
