    Don't have a Model 94, but if I got one I would not want to drill extra holes.

    Open sights do not work well for me anymore.

    What are the no drill sight options on a pre-64 Model 94?

    If you want a scope, don't go the pre 64 route; get a 94AE or better yet a Marlin 336 made after 1955.

    What about aperture sights?
    The Model 70's have holes in the side.

    In your original post you said that open sights were not an option. I consider a peep sight an open sight.

    However, I have had many people tell me that a receiver peep sight works much better for them than an open rear sight. I guess having it close to the eye helps. I have one on a 1951 336 and honestly, it works great at the range. But when I go hunting, I reach for a rifle with a scope.

    I agree. Don't drill that beautiful pre 64. Go with a williams peep or check out the one ragged hole site that mounts on dovetail foI r rear sight. I also agree about finding a cheap 336 if you want to mount a scope. I believe that the Marlin is a better built gun, but nothing feels better in the hands than a Win 94.

    A weaver side mount is doable. I had one on my '64 mod 94. It worked great. You take out a couple of screws and use the longer screws with the mount. I never had any ejection problems. It is over to the side a little, so it feels odd at first, but liked it. I killed deer with it.

    I don't use the side mount anymore. PM if you would like to see it. I only took it off, because i wanted to go back to the original look.
