I have never handled a 1894 SRC. However I like 1892/92 s. My question is are the 92 and 94 ladder sights able to be put on one or the other. Which brings me to the fact that the ladder sights don’t agree with my eyes. I have Marbles W1 I  tang sight I was going to try. Last pat. date is about 1908 era I think. It is not in front of me. I do not know if the difference in post heights of the W1 and the Marbles W2 is going to be much for 100 yard shooting.

I suppose the worst thing that can happen is miss the target.

Don’t understand your question.  The Marbles sight is FAR superior at any range to the factory sight, but for the maximum benefit in using it, knock out the factory sight.

Sorry I did not make myself clear. Two questions I suppose.

1.  Are the Mod. 92 ladder sights interchangeable with the Mod. 94  ladder sights?

2.   I have an extra Marbles W1 tang sight. Want to put it on a 1892/92 carbine. I am wondering how it will work with the front sight compared to the W2.

If you already have the W1, it’s not much trouble to test fire it to find out how it works with your front sight, which will be just fine, I’m sure.  Makers of tang sights tried to make customers believe, if they could, that only a special sight could be used on their particular gun, whereas those with the same hole spacing were mostly interchangeable, except maybe at extreme long range. 

Don’t know if calibrations on ’92 vs. ’94 sights are same or not.

I answered part of my own question about putting the W1 sight on a 92 carbine but. The rear tang screw that is for that W1 sight is about an eighth ish of a inch too long and touches the lever. I won’t shorten an old screw but I will a modern one.  Seems to be enough adjustment with the tang post to work.  I ran some dental floss over the front sight and thru the aperture to get that idea. 

I a guessing the wrist on a 1894 is thicker than the 1892.IMG_20220915_141222.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_20220915_141341.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_20220915_142226.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_20220915_143431.jpgImage Enlarger
