This is a ladder sight I put on my winchester 94. It was my long range bullet lobber. I was going to mount it on a stainless marlin 336, but like all things I will blame on my wife! No international sales, I am not putting up with that stuff again. Any ways it is highly polished to looks almost chrome like. I put some orange paint in the grooves to help see the numbers. the paint can be easily scraped out with a toothepick or whatever. I woul like to keep it cause it is just plain cool looking, but like all my other win 94 sights , some have to go. The wood grain shows up on the sight from what it is sitting on. the whole sight looks chrome. so here we go!
