I want to put a Lyman 57 on my Super 91. Will it require notching the stock?
If it’s not already notched yes. Most are notched already
Dang, I hate to notch an unfired pristine Super. Any other suggestions?
Go with a sight that fits on a weaver base such as a Williams or XS , NECG etc. several out there
I went and looked at pic in other thread. It definitely needs notched if you go with Lyman 57
I can trade with you for a stock that is already notched and not pristine, then you won't feel bad.
Preciate that, flounder. Mighty kind of you.
Mighty nice of you Art.
I like to think of it as being part of the brotherhood of the DWB's
Right ! Dirty being the key part
It's only unfired until you load it and pull the trigger. If you're worried about making personal touches to the rifle, you might as well put it on Gun Broker. With that being said, I have S91's that needed to be notched, and a couple that didn't.
Does anyone know the exact Williams sight that will clamp on the Weaver base?
I want to look at it before I decide.
Honestly the only reason for the peep is a potential Colorado elk hunt. Emphasis on "potential".
I don't think you will hurt the value of your rifle by making a notch for the lyman sight if you take your time and do a professional looking job. I'd use a file or fine rasp. There are plenty of pics if you need to see what the notch looks like.
Yeah, you're right flounder.
Heck, it was made to shoot.
The Lyman is a classic sight, and after I'm gone, somebody else can worry about it.
Life is too short.......
Maybe has to do with the caliber or bedding job idk but my .410 didn’t have to be notched.
Not sure either but all my Super 91’s needed a notch
Yea my 504 and 451 are both notched but they didn’t have the work done on them that you had done on my 410 1874, so I don’t know what made the difference I guess.
