Guys, I remember I had a neat sight from a long-defunct company called "One Ragged Hole" . Ostensibly, it is a peep sight that is affixed to the barrel sights by removing the stock "V" rear sight (two screws) and sliding the peep into place. I had one on my 9422 and it works great.

Williams still list a side mounted peep sight that fits the BB375:

You can also fit a peep sight that fits a “regular” 94, just use a file to contour the sight base to fit around the rear receiver bulge. I’ve done that to a Lyman peep.

As mentioned you can fit a XS peep sight, but the receiver will need to be D&T-ed to accept the sight. You’ll also need a higher front sight.

Works like a charm.


That sight won’t fit a top eject BB375 without D&T-ing the top of the rear receiver bridge. They are designed to fit the scope mount holes in the rear receiver bridge of the AE models.

Had my gunsmith take a standard mod 94 peep sight and file clearance for receiver bulge, worked fine on my top eject 375 win..

This one should, Jorge. It's the FP (Fool Proof) type with click adjustments, which is nice. I was looking at my .375 to see if I can tell which sight it is, but there are no markings on it other than "Williams." I believe mine is of the 5D type (no click adjustments), and it appears that they don't make that one anymore. I'd choose the FP version anyway if I was looking for one..

I'm trying to figure out what "5D" means. Anyone know?

Couldn't stand it, so I pulled my receiver sight off and disassembled it. It's the 5D type, the 94/36 model and it was ground to fit the Big Bore receiver. I would not have known. Explains why I couldn't find the 5D type for the Big Bore, though. Now I know.

I hadn't pulled that rifle from the safe in quite a while, but I'm glad I did. Damn, it's a sexy little thing!

RR don't know that it is true but always heard it was 5D cause you could buy them for about 5$ (D) back in the day. smile

I have an XTR in 375 Win. Its serial number also begins with BBO. The rest are AEs (angle eject). I have AEs in 444 Marlin, 356 Win. , 307 Win. and 7-30 Waters. They are beautiful rifles. - T.S.

I stand corrected. I forgot his was a .375.

Thanks! I don't like posting incorrect info.

Dang, I was just in Reno. I ended up buying a box of ammo locally for $25.00. That stuff is hard to find... I may have to check out your classified listing.. I'm thinking about taking the rifle hunting a little this year, in memory of my dad and my grandfather...

Williams made a specific model for the BB model 94s. I bought one through Midway about two years ago, but it may have been on close out. Look at Williams web site to see if they still make it.


If you need Buffalo Bore you are using the wrong cartridge.

Ha ha. I bought 52 pieces of new brass for $15.00 last year. I just got my die set today and i am tumbling/polishing 60 pieces of once fired brass, as we speak. Now i need to find some bullets.

The Big Bore in .356 is rated for 50,000 CUP. Is that less than the .358?

The rash is an inherent problem with the 94's of that era. Ya gotta watch you aren't paying top dollar for a rifle that isn't spotless. Especially if you're buying online.
