I have a model 94 and the front sight blade is damaged. This is my favorite gun in that it is my dads old deer rifle which he gave to me once he picked up a Ruger 77 7mag (he later gave me that too!) I have often thought about "upgrading" to a high viz front blade but I don't want to do anything irreversible. I think I can break my question down.
1. Can my broken front blade be replaced and returned to original condition? (the very top of the blade is machined round so that from the rear it looks like a dot, the "dot" is bent and the metal has cracked along the bottom of it) If that doesn't make sense I can take a pic when I feel up to digging it out.
2 If I can't return it to original cond I may as well upgrade it what front sight would you recommend?
3 If I can return it to stock is there a better sight that can be installed without making permanent changes so I can return it to original one day?
