I'm OK with that.......as long as you don't favor the other Alabama "team" from the plains........

Purty, ain't she?
Unfortunately, she looks much better than she performs.... in my opinion. However, at $32... you done good.

Spent some time shooting mine today, seems to do fine with old winchester pellets. I added a section of very thin fiber optic rod to the front sight, was a slightly loose fit through the small loop hole in the metal front sight. Also thought the rear sight windage adjustment to be quite handy, I thought I would have to loosen the phillips screw and manually move the sight, but it turns out that turning the screw moves the sight to where you want it adjusted, and it stays where you leave it. Also gave it a going over and stuffed pellet tin shipping foam in the hollow stock, and snugged up any loose screws.
I have since added aTang sight to mine really helps with accuracy, also added a GEO LDC that slips in to replace the original front sight and has a better post with circle to line things up real nice, almost like a low power scope.

A little late to the party, but may I ask Which tang sight did you use?
Many thanks

I keep looking at the Henery as well I just haven't decided on a caliber yet. As far as replicas I like the Co2 Umarex version. I do wish they would do a pellet version with a rifled barrel  ::) ::)

Lyman No. 2 Tang Sight for Winchester Model 94 , I used one original screw in the stock, and added one to the rear solid. The sight cost more than the rifle, but that's my rule for scopes in many cases also.

Thank you for the reply, I'm off looking for a tang sight! It feels like putting a 200 dollars saddle on a 20 dollar horse, but I like this horse and I always like tang sights!
