Re: 1895 Saddle Ring Carbines; '41 & '42

The '95s have always been my favorite levergun. For me, nothing carries better while walking the fields and trails. Other than my Grandfather's '03 sporter , the old SRC was a go to gun for just about anything that needed to be put down.

Re: Winchester Model 70 gift today

That's one sweet rifle! I've wanted a pre-'64 Model 70 forever. My dad has my Grandfather's .250-3000 but he ain't giving it up anytime soon. I've always wanted one in .30-'06 as it's one of my favorite calibers and have tons of reloading components for it. Looking forward to a range report! Gotta b...

Re: 1895 Saddle Ring Carbines; '41 & '42

The two carbines are both .30-'06. Followed by a 7.62x54r and a .35 WCF. If I remember correctly, the .30-40 was the most common in the SRC, with the .303 being one of the more scarce.

Re: Can any of you guys identify this sight?

Nope, The Krag and '03 sights are much larger. It was actually in a box with several Krag sights. That's what caught my attention since it was much smaller.

1895 Saddle Ring Carbines; '41 & '42

The top one I bought when I was still in college for $300 ( @'92), made in 1941 and knocked off a pile of deer with it. The previous owner put a pad on it and a Redfield receiver sight, but it was cheap and the first ever Winchester I'd bought for myself. The other one made in 1942 I recently picked...

I tracked down a rear sight for my '95 SRC, for an arm and a leg but I finally got one. I picked this up cheap along the way. Too short for the '95 and not a '92. Same kinda style as the '95 sight, just smaller. It was only $20 but curious what it might be for. https://i.imgur.com/os2pdfR.jpg https:...
