I have a Lyman tang sight I took off a Marlin 1892. It’s got a nice patina on it. I don’t see a model number but there is a small s and a larger m on the bottom. There is a ding on the top but the aperture is still perfectly round and it adjusts up and down and locks as it should. Comes with the mounting screws. $55 shipped. Lyman chart says it should also fit Marlin 1897, 39, and 39a. It DOES NOT fit a 1894.
Perhaps I have been watching way too many John Wayne movies lately, but I have this hankering lately for an 1892. So I was hoping to get as much info from the fire as possible. I've done limited research on my own, but I was hoping to get some expert advice as well. I've broken down the available options that I know about, so hopefully those with experience in them can chime in and help me out here. As always, thanks for the help Rossi: The cheapest option available. Also likely the most used in sass I imagine. The biggest disadvantage I have found for this rifle is option is that it's been a bit hard to find one in 44-40. Did I forget to mention that I only shoot BP? Winchester/Miroku: A lot more than a Rossi, but also a lot better looking. They can be had in 44-40 for around $1000, plus the carbine comes with a big loop lever. I did mention the recent slew of John Wayne movies? Chiappa: Price seems to be about the same as the Winchester, but I know next to nothing else about these rifles. Any information would be helpful Original Winchester: For just a bit more than the last two options, an original post 1900's can be found. Might not be the prettiest, but it'll get the job done. I am hesitant to go this route, since I already have an original 73 and don't use it all that much. Am I missing anything? Again, thanks for any help
