I have a 1973 rifle that was my dad's model 94. I was seven when he and I were up north deer hunting. It was the only deer my father got. I thought I would hunt this year with the rifle out of memory of my dad. I 'am 36 now and it sees like 1977 that nov day. My question is do I need a special tool to remove the front sight? I'am thinking about putting a williams peep sight with front fire sight. Thank you :wink:

ms - there is a sight removal tool available from Brownells for a few bucks that does the job on Winchesters and a whole bunch of other guns. You don't want to try drifting the sight out because you might break the sight base retaining screw. HTH. Mikey.

If you put a Fire Sight on, you'll have to remove the front sight. I put one on my Trapper a few years ago and had more trouble seeing it than my original with a dab of white nail polish. Removed the Fire Sight, gave it away and went back to the original with a Marble tang.

I recently traded my front sight for a marbles 1/16" gold bead to go with my Williams FP. LOVE IT!!! Groups dropped from 1" to a cloverleaf at 50 yds with an LBT 180 WFN @ 1.80 OAL over 13.0gr 2400 WSPM. 94AE Trapper .357

Removal rule is to take it out of the dovetail from left to right, install from right to left. Keeps the dovetail from spreading in theory.
