I have a few sight parts I can't ID for sure.  I can do photos if that would help any but, my first questions probably will not need photos. 

First I have a rear sight with adjustable buck horn elevation.  It also has a riser that going from photos on the Internet is a #22 for a Winchester.  My question on this sight is the width of the dove tail.  Just using a scale and measuring across the bottom flat surface it measures about 5/16".

Next is a Lyman front sight with no ID other than the name LYMAN.  The width of that dove tail, again measuring across the bottom flat is about 7/16".

Third is a two leaf folding Lyman ID'd as LYMAN S which is for some Winchesters, I believe from research a #6.  The bottom flat on that measures about 9/32".

Can you id the rifles these would go on by the dove tail dimensions given?  None are what looks like for a 3/8" dove tail slot unless I am measuring in the wrong area of the sights.  Thanks.

I am making progress.  Internet searching finds that Stevens used a 7/16" front dovetail and 5/16" rear sight dovetail.  So those two sights I have are most likely for a Stevens.
