The Marbles tang sight for the standard Model 94 has a hole spacing of between 2.0” to 2.265”, this is the #009808 sight.
The tang safety Model 94 uses the #009849 sight which has a hole spacing of 2.185”.
I could measure a Lyman sight but it sounds like you have one. What’s the matter with the Lyman sight?
Thanks William. I found the sight. The Lyman came on the rifle I bought. It was a Buff Bill Comm. The previous owner put the tang sight on. It is just a little loose. I would prefer windage also. I am not a collector so I will be shooting this 94 a lot.
We shoot a Buffalo Bill with a Lyman receiver sight and a Grade 1 Model 94 Centennial with a Lyman No 2. Love those 26” barrels.
What on your sight is loose? I really enjoy the Lyman No 2 as a hunting sight. I generally settle on one hunting load and stay with it through the hunting season.
The advantage of the Lyman No 2 is its slim [profile. The sight has little interference with my thumb and is quick when snap shooting.
It is easy to adjust for windage with paper shims. I try to use coated paper from advertisements. The plastic coating does not gather moisture. I have had no problems with the Lyman sights over quite a few years of use.
Count me as a Lyman #2 user/lover also - since it's stem is more robust than the Marble's, and less subject to the wriggling problem's that the Marble's have been experiencing these last few years.
FWIW - Although the Marbles's has "click" windage adjustments and the Lyman must have it's base shimmed to adjust the windage, BOTH the Lyman & Marble's are click adjustable for elevation - the only adjustment usually needed in the hunting field and for most target shooting at varied ranges like "silly-wet".
Dance with who brung ya, and try that Lyman out before you sell it short.
