    Ok, I don't want to put a scope on my 1894 because I like the way it looks. Kinda old school. I was wondering what some good sights to out on one are. I want to get a ghost ring sight system, but I've never put different sights on a gun and I'm not sure what to buy. This gun will be used for close range deer sized game.

    XS Sight Systems has ghost rings for several Win 94 models you might be interested in looking at.

    I love the XS sight on my 94. Get the threaded ring, if you can, so you can install a Williams peep into the aperture for precision shooting.

    I appreciate the wings on the Wild West sight, but it makes it look a bit clunky.

    In my opinion, the Lyman receiver mounted "ghost ring" peep sights are the best, and they are traditional too, because they've been making essentially the same sight for the 94 for nearly as long as there's been 94s. That's what I have on mine. When you get it, just remove the small hole insert and use the large hole as a ghost ring sight. http://www.lymanproducts.com/lymanproducts/sights.htm

    Just to be different, I have the WWG ghost ring. I liked it over the ashley because it had wings to protect the aperture. At the THR get together last month, I had the chance to shoot another member's tricked out levergun, which had sights by David Clay, IIRC. Those were slick, too.

    i have these from TruGlo on mine. they're nice but not very rugged. they probably wouldn't hold up well on a brush gun that really sees a lot of brush being made mostly of plastic but they're great for a casual use gun.
