Prtty near impossible to find even from the sight sellers. I would go to winchesterbob.com and get a repro.

Surely you jest??? A repro on a $3,500 rifle? That will never happen, but thanks Rick. I have a real nice 44-A for a trade. Thanks,Big Larry

Larry:

I was thinking that you were looking for a FRONT sight! What kind of a rear sight are you looking for????

I am surprised at you Brad. That sight is a very late sight and has no place on a 1907 vintage rifle. Thanks, Big Larry

I guess I'm going to have to disagree with you. Maybe it's not the best picture. I'd be happy to find out why it's a very late sight if I'm in error however.

I think the angle of the photo makes the sight base look like it has the short "peak" ahead of the dovetail similar to the #22F, 22G and 22K series sights circa 1928.

Yeah, it does look that way. Here are some more pictures of the same sight. I also think it would be a miracle if the elevator with that particular sight was originally with that sight.
I guess one thing I would notice on this particular sight is that the chamfer/beveling around the dovetail and down the sight is not as deep as on some others. The tall buckhorns, v notch and serrated edges should be normal for the time.

Here are some other similar Sporting Rear Sights on guns from the 1890s to 1907. I don't know if any particular one is exactly the same as any other. The bottom two are interesting to compare.

Here's something I think about and maybe someone would have a comment on. Any idea what is the cause of slight differences in what I refer to as a chamfer or bevel? For example: some bevels stop where the slot for the elevator starts while others go past that point. I 'm guessing that there were basic specifications to making the sights, but maybe the subtle differences happened because one was worked on by Joe, another one by Betty, and another one on a Wednesday, etc. Or are they slightly different for a specific reason?

Sorry Brad. Rick was right. The angle was wrong making it look like one of the later stubby ones. I didn't see any serrations either. In any event, want to trade or sell it?? Thanks, Big Larry

Not for sale Larry. Too damn hard to find sometimes!

There are about half a dozen sights I sold last year that I wish I had kept. I made a fair offer on a nice Sporting Rear and elevator(like you want) and a 34B Express Sight awhile ago but couldn't make it happen. I usually see the 34C and 34D sights but not so many 34Bs. Seems like all the sudden there will be a bunch of Winchester rear sights for sale for awhile and then they sort of disappear. Kind of like tang sights.

Brad
