30/30 Winchester: Not accurate enough fer varmints, barely adequate for small deer; BUT In a 10" to 14" barrelled pistol; is good for moose/elk to 200 yards; ground squirrels to 300 metres

250 Savage: The Original short action, compact, high velocity cartridge.

An 80 OM, perhaps. This one is a 'Hunter' and doesn't have the more domed and graduated target knobs.

According to Stroebel in his book 'Old Gunsights', "most are unmarked as to application and that shipping boxes were marked for model, application and special features."

Yep - While the Redfield 90-OM & 102-OM fits Winchester 94 & Marlin 336 factory receiver sight prep holes, only the 70-OM Hunter had round knobs (the other 2 having flatter or completely flat topped knobs).

(these have round bases, but the staff/knobs are the same for a flat base fit)

Ya know, there is wealth, and then there is a nice mess of all-steel Redding or Lyman peep sights ... 8)

I always liked the look of the old Redfields. Strangely, I've never owned one. I've always had Lyman 56, 66, and tang sights.
