Peep sight for Win. Md. 94

Hey All,
I'm new to hunting and the world of firearms in general. As it is right now I'm looking to pick up a short, lever action rifle. The Winchester model 94 has really caught my eye. One concern that has been expressed to me is that the action opens at the top of the receiver on this gun making it difficult to install a quality rear peep sight which would be desirable. Does anybody know of any way around this roadblock? Thanks for the help.

Lyman makes a rear peep sight for the winchester 94 but im not sure if it only fits the pre-angle or not. I personally prefer the marlin 336 myself. No worries about the bolt then. Plus I just like the handeling of the marlin over the winchester levers.

Welcome to the sight. I'm not sure who makes it but my uncle used a mod 94 with a peep sight mounted on the rear tang. The sight should still be avaliablr somewhere, maybe Lyman.

Lyman makes those too... Forgot about Tang mounts. The one I was referring to uses a couple of screws that are already there on the side of the reciever.

Found this for you. Has all kinds of stuff.

Thanks for the responses. I'm also looking at the Marlin 1894. Anybody have a preference out of these two guns? The Marlin 1894 has side-ejection which might be nice.

Its according to what and where you are planning on hunting as far as if that would be the proper rifle for you. The 1894's are pistol chamberings in a rifle, I.E. the 44, 44mag, 357mag, and 32/20 which will all down deer at a reasonably close range. My prefrence would be in the rifle cartriges of the 336 such as the 30/30 , .35, .444 or the .35 wheeland in a lever gun. Get some more distance and more power with these at around the same cost for the rifle.
