    I’m partial to Marble’s tang sight. It gives a longer sight radius than a receiver mounted aperture and is “click” windage and elevation adjustable. Sits solid in the mount, unlike Lyman’s tang.

    Rossi doesn’t make 94’s. That aside, given the same caliber and a choice between a 92 or 94, I’d go the 92. The 92 is inherently stronger due to the two locking lugs either side of the bolt as...
