I agree. I found my great grandfather's old model '94 in the corner of an attic in my grandparents farmhouse. 1953 serial number. He bought it brand new. The thing was covered in thick dust, cobwebs and some areas of surface rust. After a little elbow grease and a lot of rem oil, the thing shoots moxie cans at 50 yards, no problem.
As far as the sight issue, I agree that it's tough to use. There is only a tiny notch cut into the rear sight. Replacing it with a peep sight might really help you out, I know I have been tempted to before.
