Proper way to in stall winchester saddle ring?

#1 Post by Recoil Rob » Fri Oct 04, 2019 10:33 am

I just picked up a nice 1921 M94 SRC, it still has the stud but is missing the ring. I can source a new ring, is there a proper way to install the new one or just bend it open and close it up?


thanks,

Rob

Welcome to the board, Rob !

If you haven't doe it before, it's fairly easy to kink the ring while working it.

I would cut to the chase, and simply install a replacement stud/ring assembly.

If it appears to clash finish-wise with your rifle, it's easy enough to "antique" the replacement to match.

I agree with Pete44ru that a new ring and stud is best, however, I'd look for one with a better finish.

Here's one. LINK
