Marbles 69w sight for a 1866

Holiday Hayes SASS#39,336

Recommended Posts

Is this sight SASS legal? It has a small non-click windage adjustment screw under the folding blade. I didn't realize it was the "W" model until I recieved it. The dovetail is too close to mount a standard Marbles sight properly. Thanks for any info
