Lyman 48 Receiver Sight

Q: I've got a Winchester Model 70, made in 1946. As is the case with yours (January 2008 Medley), there's two tapped and threaded holes in the fronttop of the receiver and two additional ones on the rear left side of the receiver. Lyman recommends using a newer 57WJS sight, but there's one on eBay right now that is the 48F, which is what I believe you used on your restoration. Did the 48F curve to fit your Model 70's receiver well?

A: The 48F is for the Winchester 52, not the 70. You want the 48 WJS sight for the Model 70, according to the book Old Gunsights & Rifle Scopes by Nick Stroebel (Gun Digest Books,

Lyman Sight

The earlier 1st and 2nd Model Lyman 48 bases (left) measure 1.0625" x 1.250" vs. the 3rd Model sight base (right) 1.0625" x 1". The 3rd Model Lyman 48 was made from 1947 to 1974. Assembly numbers, stamped inside the base underneath the slide and inside the slide, should match. The model of sight (48) and the code for the firearm (S for Springfield, WJS for Winchester Model 70, for example) is also stamped on the body of the sight base and the letter code is stamped on the inside of the slide.

If your gun is in pristine condition, make sure you look for the 3rd Model sight, which came out in 1947, as the earlier ones require stock wood be removed for the base. nrra

The 3rd Model Lyman 48 shown on the Winchester Model 70 (top) can be fitted without removing stock wood, unlike earlier 1st and 2nd Model sights which generally require considerable stock surgery, as shown on this Springfield M1903.
