All,
I am looking for a front sight hood/cover for my 1951 Winchester 94. In general, I am finding two types. One is slanted on one side and the other is slanted on both sides. I have included pictures of both below.

I do not have access to a vintage catalog/manual/parts list, and cannot find anything definitive online, so I am not sure which type is correct for my gun. Can someone educate me?

Thanks in advance,
Chris

This one appears to be slanted on both sides.

rcmodel,
Sold! I was trying to locate Winchester literature, but all of the guns you linked (as well as others I looked at) had the same sight hood. Not sure why I didn't think of that ...

Thanks for taking time to help me, and for all of the replies I see from you.
