Good evening,

A friend of mine just purchased a Winchester 1895 Sporting Carbine in .30-40 Krag.  It has a manufacture date of 1906 according to the serial number.  Unfortunately, it is missing the rear sight elevator, and he asked me to help figure out what elevator it needs.  I do not know much of anything about these rifles, so I would appreciate any help that you could give me.  I was told on another page that the rear sight I have is a 22 B, but I am not sure if that is correct.  It looks to be a semi-buckhorn sight.  For now, I only have a Guest account, so I can't post pictures of it, but if I need to, I can get an actual paid membership to include pictures.

Thanks,

Michael

Michael,

I believe that the correct elevator is the one I have in the picture below:

You need the exact elevator that I posted a picture of.

Bert,

Thank you very much.  Is there a specific designation for that elevator? When I looked online before, I saw 1-A, 1-B, 1-C, and I think 32B.  Or do I just count the grooves and match it to that?

I believe that what you need is the 1-B.  It should have the Feb. 1901 patent date on the left side if you are looking for an original.
