This one was made in 68 and has a 26 inch barrel and a saddle ring. Never seen a long barrel with a saddle ring, but then again I don't know a lot about these.

I think all Classics had the saddle ring. My 26" Teddy Roosevelt Rifle has one as well.

Ok I'll get her out of the safe and post another pic just for you redneck. Anyone that has a pic of one these with a peep sight I would appreciate seeing those, I'm wondering about tang mount peep sight any ideas? I have shoot it a good bit since my OP. It amazes me how well it function and shoots. A buddy gave me 80 rounds of his handloads they are 170gr lead cast bullets and they where light and pleasant to shoot. He brought a marlin 336 with Williams peep on it and it was nice to shoot.fast to get on target.

Thanks from Redneck Yankee

Wasted, that is so cool. Long octagonal barrel- love it. I didn't know the barrel was set so the sights are on the angle and not the flat. It seems like you worked on the stock too; nice job. Great classic deer hunting rifle. You have to enjoy the venison you get with that.

Wow, awesome rifle. I'm in the minority but ,unless you prefer the original "softness" to the finish/grain, I'd refinish it. Really can't go wrong either way and whichever way you're leaning is the right choice

The sights are dead center, sorry if the pic makes it look funny. I took the photo to try and show the wood and the long barrel so y'all could get a perspective of what it was. I cleaned the gun and shiny it about 100 rounds. Have not taken it apart or touched the wood.

I didn't mean the sights aren't centered. It seems to me the sights are mounted on an angle point of the octagon rather than a flat face of the octagon. Is that the photo making it look that way? I can't zoom in well, that's why I ask. Must be fun to shoot.
Cheers

Yes, they are on the flat part on top of the barrel. The pic and shadows make it look weird.

My first center fire rifle was a Mdl 94 that I bought while on leave from boot camp in 1972. I still have it and took my first deer with it. I also have 1946 'flat band' Mdl 94 that I picked up several years ago. Its tighter than my other Mdl 94.

Well in that case ,I wouldn't change a thing.maybe put a little shine to it.
