WV, Thank God!
Oh great! Something else for me to lust after.

I know where there's a NIB Browning repo (no safety) available for about a grand. Need to take a cold shower and find something to take my mind off stuff I don't need.


Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Except for the Hawkins recoil pad, which was added MANY years ago, this one cost me several hundred dollars BELOW $1000. I thought that was more than fair for a 113 year old 1895.

Have you ever seen a 95 in 7.62x54r ?

Only photos. But I'm hermitized and don't get out much!!! 😂 And to think almost what??? Almost 600,000 made? I remember seeing the adds from was it Hunter's Lodge? Back in the 60's. "These rifles still have Trotsky's teeth marks on them!"

Some didn't make it to Russia. I believe the shipment was stopped in England in 1917 as the Czar abdicated. So I've heard. Mebbe urban myth.

But lots ended up in Spain in the 30's and also China like late 40's.

Longhunter,

You story of the mis-purchase of your 95 (sold to you as 30/40) reminds me of walking into our local Small town shop one day. Lo and behold there's a std 1895 rifle on the rack. I asked to see it. The shop owner hands it to me and say "it a 30/06!"

On top of receiver it is stamped .30 Govt 1903. So I try to explain the difference to him. And he's still maybe a bit skeptical. Then again he does own the shop so that makes him the authority. And we all know the type of experts that frequent these establishments. 😁 So the next week I drop by and kindly lay this box on their counter and tell the guy "this is the correct cartridge for that 95." He was a bit flabbergasted but thankful. Admitted he had never heard of the ctg!

Btw, I felt their rifle was a bit overpriced. But someone will buy it, Im sure!

kaywoodie,
Can you join the club if you run a "Japchester M1895"?
I have one in 405 WCF that is a hoot to shoot and hunt with.

He let me in with my Miroku / Winchester TD in .405.

Regardless of what anyone else says, they are fun to hunt with!!!

I have no issue toting one around the woods! They are not unwieldy or difficult for me!!

And they are just über cool!!!

That's hella cool, just as Woodie's elk is.

I'd LOVE to flame a moose with mine, or an Axis.

I only own 3 Winchesters and they are all lever actions, though I'd like to have a Model 97 again. I killed my first turkey with a M97

In my opinion, an 1895 ain't hardly correct without one! (except maybe a SRC). I'm a big fan of the "Climbing Lyman", I have one on my .405 '95. My late fathers M64 carbine was fitted with one as was his older brothers Remington 141. Now I'm thinking of picking up an 1894 rifle in .25-35 that because it has a Lyman. crazy

I have a question on those Lymans. Given about a 28" sight radius, .008" movement of the rear sight equals 1 inch at 100 yards. x/28 = 1/3600. It's actually .007777777" movement but let's not quibble over billionths. So if that sight has 2" of travel, that's 257 MOA elevation adjustment. Even if it's only 1" of travel that's still 128 MOA. Now the numbers can be juggled some but you only need about 45 MOA elevation change to go from a 100 yard sight in to 1000 yards in a typical .30-06 load.

So my question is, exactly what was that much elevation adjustment supposed to be used for?


Gunnery, gunnery, gunnery.
Hit the target, all else is twaddle!

This^^^^. I have a 21 on my .35 WCF. And there had been one my SRC. Wished they weren't an arm and a leg, I'd like 2 or 3 more. Someday may opt for a Providence tool copy. It's a perfect hunting sight for the 1895.

As for all the elevation on the 21, originally The 95 was offered in ctgs like 38/72, 40/72, etc. May have been useful on them. I took my 2016 bull almost 200 yds. With the 35. No additional sight adjustment. Maybe a bit of Kentucky windage involved. 😉

Could always tell when the gunshow was in town! Some CAS fellow would come in Monday morning with a "new" 97 in two zip lock bags! There's just something about them fellers and screwdriver slots.

Can kinda kick myself for not grabbing one of the better ones that would come thru while I was still working. But I had like 6 Model 12's at the time. Think I'm down to 3 of them now.

I found this one at a gun show, reblued and refinished, I had it cut down. I had another 97 original condition that my son used to kill his first turkey so I gave him the gun. I love them old guns....they're not makin em anymore. smile
