Will pay top dollar for a 75 percent or higher sight.  I need the earlier style sight, pre lock lever, thin base.  Let me know what you might have available by PM.

A shame Lyman didn’t mark the “S” on top of the base, so the extra hundred bucks they now bring could be more fully appreciated.

Something seems amiss with that one. Aren’t all the S application sights made with the staff closer to center, like the N marked ones for the ’86? The only #2 “S” sight I have is the way I’ve described. Is the one on Ebay over-stamped. Thoughts? I suppose Bert aka “Highwall Hartman” will know.

Here’s one I have …… sorry Jeff, not for sale

Don,

The sight on ebay is a No. 1 versus a No. 2, and it is specifically for a low-wall Single Shot.

Gary,

The “S” coded sight on ebay is correct, but for a low-wall Single Shot rifle.  The sight you have is the correct type for the high-wall rifles.

I always thought so too, until Bert posted a photo of several just like the one on ebay from his vast collection.  Supposedly, moving the stem to the middle of the base prevented interference with very long cartridges, but if so, why weren’t they all made that way? And if anyone can answer that question, maybe they can explain the diff between S & N bases; I see none.

Thanks fellows. I learned something new. Didn’t realize the ones intended for the low wall frames were the forward positioned staffs.

The low-wall rifles were chambered for short length rim fire and center fire cartridges, and they did not require the clearance needed for the long cartridges chambered in the high-wall rifles.

The difference in the “N” & “NI” sights versus the “S” sight is the length of the elevation staff.
