Lyman tang sights production dates

Posted by Rustyjack on May 22, 2016 at 11:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello MIckey

Thanks for letting me join your site.

Hoping you can answer a question about Lyman tang sights on a Winchester 1890.

What was the production period for the Lyman No. 1 (not 1A) marked WS for the model 1890?

Would it be correct and original to find one on a 1917 production rifle?

Thanks and hope you are feeling well.


Lyman 1A SL tang sight

Is there a list on the hole spacings for mounting of the rear tang type sights? I'm looking for a Lyman 1A SL tang sight for my Winchester model 1907 351. Will the Lyman model SM (Savage Model) fit my gun? The hole spacing on my Winchester is 13/16.

Help needed on the age of a Lyman WS sight

I recently bought a really nice Winchester Model 1890, manufactured in 1908. It had a nice Lyman tang sight on it. When I took off the sight, the bluing on the tang was in perfect shape, making me think the sight may have either come on the gun when new or was mounted shortly after. It was marked WS on the underside of the sight, so I know it is correct for that model rifle. The only other marking on the sight is the word LYMAN on the lower vertical  flat surface of the upright portion o...

Lyman sight code

Posted by Mickey Gilbertson on July 23, 2010 at 11:46 AM Comments comments (36)

There seems to be quite an interest in a listing of the application base codes for the old original Lyman tang sights. I have looked through many vintage Lyman catalogs, and I have compiled the listing that follows. I am pretty sure it is complete for the time period it covers, but if anyone has any additions or corrections, please feel free to offer them up (I may have inadvertently missed something). Many "special" tang sights to fit rifles of unusual configuration in the tang area were als...
