I was hoping mine would be too, but it's the absolute worst shooting .22 I've ever had. I told my dad that if he can get it to shoot well for him then keep it. If he wanted, he can pick up another MKII for me, but whatever he wants to do with is fine with me.. I was really disappointed with it. jb 8)

Re: Value of a 1895 Winchester carbine

The sight alone is worth $100-200 depending on where you are and the condition. It's quite common on 95 SRCs. The 1895s have been my favorites since I bought my first SRC about 25 years ago.

Re: Value of a 1895 Winchester carbine

Looks a bit like a Buffington (Springfield) rear sight with the adjustment knobs up front. Doesn't really matter, it's a nice carbine in good shape. I have one similar In .30-06 that's been my woods walking / cabin gun since I bought it about 25 years ago.

1895 Musket rear sight.

The musket and SRC upper handguards are very similar but not identical. There's a slight difference between them. I have a spare SRC handguard that I picked up years ago waiting for a home on a half naked SRC.

That is a trophy. If the handguard won't fit over the rear sight it's most likely a Springfield / Krag sight. Not a big deal as they were very similar. Or even more rare would be the rear sight from an 1895 Musket. I'll add a picture of one o f those in a few. An 1895 SRC in .30-40 can have a huge h...
