    I don't think the inline shoots better or farther. in the old days they would shoot 200 rods{ 220 yds.} which was the norm. they shot farther then that also.

    I don't know if there ever was a standard sight. back in the day Winchester was in the business to sell guns. so they would put any sight on that you wanted. I have 6 .32 94s and no two have the same sight. even the carbines have different sights.

    the smokeless rear sight is a quick adjust for elevation. sort of like a military rear sight. it also says smokeless on the sight.

    check the public auctions and estate sales. know what spot price is then bid on them. that way you are not paying a dealer. just find out if they charge a buyers premium. me I will not go to a auction that charges one.
