Attached are photos of sight that was on 73 Winchester. Brass blade (non-magnetic) base steel (magnetic). Blade peened to base. I doubt if Winchester made it. Anybody out there able to identify it? Don

Don,

That looks like a crudely made sight. I would guess its not from a well known maker, maybe homemade.

Bob, I just found an identical sight sold on Ebay on Nov. 7. 2020. The seller ZBCOINS said it was for Winchesters and Marlins. It sold for $45.Don

Don, just like 1873man said.  People make reproduction rocky mountain sights.  Some better than others.

Don,

I wouldn’t say identical but similar in design The one you posted had the blade peened in better than ZBCOINS but still a very crudely made sight. And of course they always claim its a Rocky Mtn which its not. Its surprising what people will spend on crap sights.

ZBCOINS sight

Any sight that fits the factory sight slots can be said to be made “for” Winchester, but that has nothing to do with who made the sight.
