I got my dad one of these since his eyes have been failing him as of late.

I've looked into the single piece blocks with rings, etc. and just seem to be at a loss.

Each fit the Winchester 94.
Thanks a bunch. I figured Brownells had to have something. However, my search-fu sucks when it comes to that site.

I like the XS scout mounts on my Marlins. But the Win. 94 version seems to have a limited number of scope ring slots machined into it (compared to the Marlin version).

Even with the 5.5" eye relief of that scope, he still may have to take a metal file to it, to cut another scope ring Weaver slot further back on the scout mount (I've done that a few times myself, so it's an option).
I like that idea. I do believe the Win94 has four tapped holes...two forward and two rear.

With that scout mount, you'd have to tap out the dovetailed rear sight, and replace it with the included dovetail filler block (that has a threaded hole in it). Then the scout mount scope base would be bolted on with the two forward receiver bolt holes, and the one in the dovetail block.

Here is a one time offer. I will make you a full drop leg rig including holster, belt, and Butt Cuff for $200 if you show me a receipt for a ranch hand in the next 30 days. Hell I will even include a GUNSLINGER RIFLE SPRING KIT for $10 more. :mrgreen:

Edit to add:

I will even include enough Deer tanned Lace to do a full loop wrap. Yes I am trying to tempt you brother. HEHE as Mal said "I am a bad man".

Yea, I won't be pulling that trigger, I've spent far too much in the past month, but that is pure evil, Mal taught you well.

Looks like all they did was bob the barrel and stock on their regular lever-rifle. So....

Non dick post:

It's sold as a rifle in Canada, pistol in 'Merica. As I understand, swapping the stock for a full length '92 stock would make it an SBR in the states. Here, it's still a rifle. Such is a future project for myself, if I cannot find a used '94 before I save the money for a ranch hand.

Nope. Minimum overall when folded or collapsed must be more than 18.5. I have a friend with a shotgun which only has an 8.5 inch barrel.
