Hi everyone. I found this sight in a box of stuff I bought a couple years ago. Can anyone confirm it is in fact for a Win 69A ? Box says its a 57 EF Micrometer Receiver Sight for the 69A but I don’t know anything about it. I tried Google and from what I saw it doesn’t look like what this is unless it’s just me. Sorry the pic is sideways ! I don’t know how to turn it.

Thanks !

I believe what you have are both the front and rear factory sights from a 69A. The Lyman is probably on the rifle they came off.

You have (according to my magnificent new Model 69 book) a Winchester Model 80 A or B (depending on dia. of aperture) rcvr sight, in the box for the special Lyman rcvr sight made for 69s.  The Lyman sight was a factory option for 69s, but this gun was apparently purchased with the Model 80 sight, then later retrofitted with the Lyman, by a contentious owner who placed the original sights into the Lyman box, rather than tossing them into his parts drawer. 

Front sight appears to be a Winchester Model 97B, of which there are several variations I’m not competent to disentangle.

Thank you Clarence !  Itook a screen shot off Classic Firearms and Parts web site so it looks like a Model 80A according to them. No wonder I couldn’t find it when I did a Google search.

I guess I also have the front sight as well Thanks to Erin’s advice

Thanks for the help !

You’d have to know the dia of the aperture to distinguish between A & B Model 80s; as we’re constantly brainwashed by our gov’t, discrimination is evil, so I’ll just refer to them all as Model 80s.

So you insist on practicing discrimination?  Ap of the 80A was .080″ dia, but the 80B was available in FOUR different sizes, .052 through .0225″.  The multiplicity of 69 sight options is bewildering–should think it gave workers in the assembly room fits.

Since you apparently don’t have a set of pin gauges handy you may be able to press a set of drill bits into service to approximate aperture sizes. I use the base to avoid damaging the finish.
