i have a purchased a Model 94 trapper with a 16 inch barrel on it.
The front sight is broken off.
When i look about ordering one, i see different heights ranging from .431 to .455.
Cam someone tell me which is the best or the original?
Thanks
its a 30-30

My .30-30 Winchester 94 Trapper's front sight was mounted directly in a barrel dovetail.

The issue front sight was .450", so I would suggest ordering the .451" tall sight.

A new front sight will likely need some file work to fit. Be sure to file the sight, not the barrel dovetail. I usually file the bottom of the sight until I get a very tight fit (known as a press fit).
