New Winchester 1894 drilled and tapped

Post by olsingleshot »

I bought one of the new Winchester 1894 in .25-35 and I noticed the strap in front of the ejection port is drilled and tapped twice as if for a scope base. The metal on either side of the ejection port also is drilled and tapped once on each side. Can anyone tell what these are for?

Attaching scope bases or receiver sights

Winchester started D&T'ing for scope mounts in the early 80's when they went to the AE models.
