Miroku Tang Sight Threads

<< < (2/2)

Niederlander:
Did you buy one for the original '73 or the new Winchester (Miroku) '73?

Blackpowder Burn:
Well...my $0.02 worth.

I have both a new Miroku '73 and a couple of originals.  The standard screw set for a Marbles tang sight fits both my new and original rifle.  I just removed the 140 year old plugs from the tang on the original and screwed on the Marbles.  I love that kind of consistency!

Niederlander:
The sights for the originals and the ones for the Miroku are different part numbers.  Is the sight angle correct for both?  From what I've read, the difference is about four degrees, so I'd think they would work with either one, but I don't have the one for the Miroku to try.

I do know we were comparing original 73 to the Miroku a few years back as to whether they should be approved for NCOWS and the Miroku was a slight bit different angle when laying them on top of one another. In fact other than the same appearance from across the room they are very different from the originals.
