Scoping the winchester Angle eject 94


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Is there a way where you can scope it (ie Weaver bases rings) and be able to remove the scope and still access the open sights?

I have a set of weaver bases on my 30-30 and them "block" looking bases completely cover the sights. Especially on mine that shoots kinda high to begin with and the rear sight has to go all the way down even with a .55" high front sight. Any help?????

This is what I have, as you can see the rear seems to be a foot high!!!! LOL

It may take you some researching online, but Weaver made a pivoting mount for their rings for many years and I'd not be surprised to see one made for the M94 AE. You might try to research the original number (numbers?) for the one piece or the two piece pivot bases and then search online. There are a number of these bases and rings available at low cost online, but many do not say exactly which rifles they fit.

Pick one or the other.

I'd rather have something that does one thing very well, rather than something that does 2 things so so. (MY TASTES), but I can't stand looking at iron sights thru a scope. CAN a catastrophic scope failure happen?, SURE. You could also break a stock.

Why can't you have both in a position to do well? Like on my Marlins...... My point....
Sure you can break a scope but you do not always have small screwdrivers in the field to remove the bases.

There are always "see-thru" rings, but they position the scope up high enough that you resemble a turkey trying to see through the scope. However, it allows you to see the iron sights at the same time. These can fit on a one piece rail that is shallow enough to see the irons.

There are options.

As stated the see thru's, which IMO MAY offer a correct stock to shooter fit using one or the other sights, OR NEITHER. There are the quick release mounts. How strong or how well they will hold a zero with some rough handling/bumps, removing & replacing is questionable, for me anyway.

Maybe the OP has found his solution already but I will go plus one for see thru rings. I started hunting with a m94AE, used the buckhorn sights for the first couple years then bought (weaver I think) see throughs. The see throughs worked great until I discovered peep sights. I put a really good set of peep sights on my m94 and never looked back.
