Well im finally done!! I got my Win 95 back from the gunsmith the other day and my rear sight came today.. The rear sight is a vintage Marbles semi-buckhorn I got cheap, but I think matches the rifle well. The rifle seems to function and feed great, all thats left is to go out and shoot it!

Took a pic in the hay, It is a ranch rifle after all!!
Last pic is of the stock repair....

Trez, it looks great you did a nice job bringing that beauty back into service. Compared to the volumes of Model '94's around, that '95 is definitely a good conversation piece you can be proud of.

When you get it done dont forget a range report.
I think its safe to say we ALL want to get feedback from the range!!!

Congratulations for sticking to it. You did a great job. Now go shoot that rascal and give us a range report.

Got to shoot the Winchester today... It did way better than I thought! I only had 5 old factory rds. and was only shooting at 50 yds, but all 5 rds. hit the target. I need to make some more ammo....
First round was low, the second high (the little arrow) and the other 3 on target.... I wish I did this with my Arisaka....
