Want to buy a Winchester 34C 3-leaf express rear sight.  Looking for one similar to the one in the below photos.  Prefer 80%+ condition with the platinum lines.  No broken or missing leafs and also no ugly hammer or punch marks.  Must have standard 3/8″ dovetail.  Please send me a PM if you have one and are willing to sell.

Thanks,

Don

This one is on eBay.  Price seems high to me but I don’t know what they go for.

I call myself a collector as it sounds better than hoarder

Not this much.  Doubt it will sell at this price.  I’d ask seller for a better price after auction ends.  $10 shipping when it could be mailed 1st Class for about $2, & be delivered just as quickly.

Wow…looks like somebody paid the asking price.  Nice sight, but priced a bit high in my opinion. Hard to find these in nice condition without broken a broken leaf.

  The sight on EBAY had condition, platinum inlays, and range markings. If I needed one I would gladly pay that. A dollar isn’t worth what it use to be. T/R

Not sure what 1st Class shipping container looks like but I would gladly pay for a $10 Priority shipping box.  I would feel more comfortable to have it in a large well padded box. Less chance of it getting lost or damaged.

The PO loves folks with that attitude!  The intelligent way to ship it would be in a small padded envelope.  1st C. just as fast as Priority.   I’ve shipped & received HUNDREDS of small items like this without loss or damage.  Thieves working in the Bulk Mailing Ctrs. steal the packages most likely to contain valuables, such as Priority boxes.  However, ebay sellers make customers pay Priority not because they’re worried about loss, but strictly because they want to use the FREE boxes, as opposed to paying about 50 cents for a small padded envelope.

34C Express sights have been at that price for quite a while in that condition.  I sold 3 at Las Vegas last weekend… $250 to $325… condition is everything.

Thanks everyone.  I’m buying Rick Hill’s high condition platinum lined sight.  It’s a bit spendy, but worth it.  Very hard to find in this condition.

Thanks for the kind words Chuck.  It was good to meet you and learn some things about Henry sights!  The Las Vegas show hasn’t recovered from the past couple years struggles, hope next year is better.  Looking forward to the Colorado & Cody shows…
