That has a good look to it. I like the fact that you didnít have to change the front sight.

There are some members that also used the Skinner sight. I donít remember if they had to change the front sight.

The Lyman 17AHB front globe sight pairs perfectly with the Williams FP-GR-TK peep sight on the 9422.

That combination is the most popular for lever action silhouette match shooters.

Thanks for the advice. Seems that brownells finland has those sights in stock.
I must say again. I just love this rifle and a scope is no-go except for ammo testing.

One word of caution if you install a Lyman 17A front globe sight. The dovetail is slightly oversize and will most likely require some filing to fit properly. If the sight fitment is too tight, driving the sight into the ramp can break the tiny screw that attaches the ramp to the barrel.

File the sight, not the ramp. Have a gunsmith do it if you aren't comfortable with the job.

One last tip for the Lyman 17A. Lee Shaver 17 series inserts are better than the ones that come with the globe sight. I highly recommend them.

A month ago my 9422 slipped off the couch and the front sight bead popped off and disappeared so I bought a Williams front sight pusher from Brownell's ($65) and a Williams red fibreoptic front sight. Installed, it looks good and shoots very well. It's a good option for those with aging eyes but like me refuse to scope a lever action.

My .44mag Trail's End is done in the same manner and hitting a 12"x12" plate at 100 yards is fair easy.

That sounds like a good option.

I prefer not to scope a lever action rifle, unless I canít see the sights. So far, I can still see the sights, therefore I only have one scoped lever action rifle.

I have a 9422M that I bought new in 1984. The rifle was built circa 1982, if I recall, and it is an XTR model with the checkering. I love it and it has taken a number of coyotes, skunks and even a few hogs. It is still in nearly 100% condition. I would never sell it. I have an eye condition, a retinal tear/separation, and a cataract in my right eye. Though I still pass my flight physical just take my word for it, open sights/peep sights or similar, just no longer are an option. I long ago mounted a Weaver K3 60B (from my grand father) and it works great, looks great and is a perfect combination with the rifle. I do keep changing scope rings. Right now I currently have Leupold .22RF Rifleman vertical split rings and like them but, still, the hunt goes on for the perfect rings to bring the perfect rifle and perfect scope together, uh, perfectly.

I have several lever guns, mostly Marlins. All but one (my truck rifle carried in a scabbard) are scoped and it has a rail that would accept a scope or red dot. I like the Warne QR rings which allows me to remove the scopes for open sight use and transport without loosing zero. I just never understood the aversion to scopes on lever guns. Folks have been putting scopes on lever guns since there were lever guns and scopes to put on the lever guns. My grandfather scoped his lever guns and he was a pilot and could not see either. I think it is okay to scope a lever gun. An alternative opinion to all the open sights and peep sights and all the rest of it that did not come on them either, especially considering peep sights could requite drilling and tapping of the receiver.

Welcome to the forum and you did excellent on your first lever gun. Congratulations on the finest of all the levers out there.

If you would like a peep sight, I am not sure if you can buy Skinner sights where you are but here is an example of my 9422 with Skinner sights. Mine is sporting a red dot on her now as my diabetic eyes are getting older. I only have one lever gun left with peep sights all the others have been red dotted.
