Peep Sight For A Winchester Model 94

A Lyman Target Aperture Sight
 Q

I have an old Winchester Model 94 lever-action which is top-eject not angle-eject. This makes it awkward to fit a scope so I am looking for a receiver mounted peep sight which provides a ghost ring sight picture. The receiver is drilled and tapped making it easy to attach such a sight. What makes are available?

ALyman tang and receiver peep sights are available through your local gunshop from the importer, Nioa. Order LKYA Lyman Receiver Sight Win. 94 Pre Angle-Eject. These sights are very well made and can be easily adjusted for sighting in. I like to keep the small diameter disk in place for target shooting and remove it when I go hunting. The ghost ring is not quite as precise, but a lot faster, especially in poor light. Receiver sights sometimes require a higher front sight, but your Model 94 probably doesn't.

Lawyer Daggit,

I have to agree with what Terry said. The Williams FP and Lyman 66A are two of the best designed peep sights ever made.
Mounted where they go they are out of the way, very durable, and most importantly of all, they work.

Why in recent years people have decided these sights are ugly or clunky or what ever the description and unwanted is beyond me.

Installing a "One Ragged Hole" or a "Skinner" sight will place the aperture quite a ways away from the eye. The main reason for a peep sight is to increase the sight radius to gain accuracy potential. That's why the military always puts the peep sights at the rear of the receiver close to the eye.

I've used these sights for over 40 years and prefer them. Give them a try. If you really really don't like it, put it here in the classyfieds and it'll be gone in a heart beat.


EDIT: I was typing as you responded. I understand about experimenting to a point. I guess I'm old enough to have tried a bunch of things and decided what works and what don't. Terry is older than me, been there and done that so many times he's gotten and worn out the t-shirts.
So we simply recommend what we know works.

I&#;m looking for your input on the best peep sight to install on a Model 94, My eyes are getting a little old for the iron sights and am hoping the peep will do better for me. I would like input for the peep with the least amount of change to the rifle.
Thanks in advance

I think your Model 94 should have two small holes drilled and tapped on the left side of your receiver, up near the top towards the back. They will have filler screws in them right now. The purpose of those holes is to screw on a receiver sight. I have a Model 94 and I mounted a Lyman receiver sight. It works great for my old eyes, but I&#;m not overly impressed with its rather flimsy construction. The old Lymans were much stronger. I would recommend taking a look at the Williams receiver sight (don&#;t know the exact number for a Model 94). From pictures at least, they appear to be better made.

A vintage Model 94 could have been ordered with a Lyman No. 56 receiver peep sight. You could also put a Redfield 70 series sight on it.

I have the Lyman sight, probably the 56, on the Low Wall that spent so much time behind the kitchen door. I have a Williams on a British Martini. The Williams box indicated that it was for the Winchester Of the two, I far prefer the Lyman. But the Lyman sight is probably of s vintage and the Williams is from the s. That alone probably explains the difference.

The Lyman 56 receiver sight of the &#;s was a very nice sight, not to be compared with the current modern ones. I would love to have a 50&#;s vintage Lyman on my Model 94 carbine.

I can see it is going to be no easy task to come across the &#;s Lyman sight. I was going to try one of the newer ones but I don&#;t think I will. It just wouldn&#;t be right.

Recommend adding a larger disc aperture. I use 1" on all my peep sights. It focuses old eyes quickly and easily. Without one I&#;m looking into a void&#;

The 1" aperture disc is the Target disc (has the smallest peep hole diameter). The smaller the outside diameter the disk has, the larger the peep hole diameter is. Lyman made at least six different sizes of the aperture disks.

My 94 () though, has a marbles flip up peep that fits the tang screw holes. I really LOVE it! Puts the peep right up to my eye. I get 1" groups with cast boolits at yds with it. She drills em in, and I commend the rear peep as the ticket in proper sighting for me.

This is my Model OB Sporting Rifle, DOM also, and the sight on the left is on it these days; an older one. I have both Lyman and Marbles and like certain things about both. I&#;m also more than happy with the accuracy and did some handloading for it today in fact. Good to hear your gun is a real shooter too.

Model 94 Peep Sight

All Winchester 94 rifles are drilled and tapped, for a peep sight, from the factory.

I have been using a Williams Guide receiver sight on a '94 for the past 40 years. They are still building the same sight and the price is still right. It mounts with no problems for anyone that happens to own a screwdriver if the right size, a multi-tool of a good boy scout knife.

Sometime back through the eons I removed the screw in peep and just use the big threaded hole as a ghost ring.

If your 94 is already sighted in with the open sights you can leave the rear step sight in place, install the peep sight, line it up with the open sights, then remove the step blade rear sight.

I replaced my stepped rear sight with a flip up rear blade, since I shoot cast bullet reduced loads in the rifle as well. The peep is set for factory loads, actually my jacketed hand loads, and the flip up blade is set for the 90 gn squib squirrel hunting loads.
