The sight has a short staff in it so it would not work for a 73.

Bob is correct.  Staff is too short for either the ’73 or the ’76.  Hole spacing is correct for Winchester, but the spring is unmarked, so it is a guess as to what it fits.  Very nice sight, however.

It would probably fit a 92 or 94.

Here’s a later one that’s been listed for several months.  Seller has reduced price by about $100 from where he started.  His shipping price is not more than many (cheating) US sellers would charge.

 Clarence,

 I think that sight has an Axtel base with a newer Lyman stem. T/R
