Can't advise on the sight that came on your nifty new rifle acquisition. A '37 vintage .220 Swift Serial No. 4874 lives here, acquired from the original owner who scoped it early on, first with a Weaver 330C then with a Lyman All-American 6X which it's worn for decades. A filler blank is a rear sight place holder. No signs of wear are indicated where a sight used to come in contact with barrel surfaces. I can't recall the barrel's year marking.
I think the plain ol' standard rear sight was the Winchester 22G, same as on the pre-war Winchester Model 94, but some Winchester guru should come along soon and provide something definitive.
The Swifts I have here, the pre-war Model 70 and a '72 vintage Ruger Model 77V.
The Winchester Model 70 tribe. Love pre-64's best of all sporting rifles and would have a jillion of 'em to love, shoot, and care for, just as one collecting tangent. All it takes is money.
The '37 .220 Swift, a '47 .257 Roberts, a '53 .30-06 (old favorite big game rifle), and a 1980s-1990s(?) Super Express in .375 H&H Magnum.
So, back on track
Anyone know which model number sight should I be looking for?
Nice guns everyone

Never buy a gun you'll have to make excuses for later
Investigate the Winchester-produced 22G rear sight for your rifle.
