Long range sight? Tang or action mount?

Recommended Posts

For long range side matches - Is a action-mounted peep sight legal?

Rifle caliber, 45-70, lever action, marlin, peep mounted on top of action vs. tang.

NO.

 

Sight goes either on the Barrel or the Tang. Receiver mounted sights are not allowed. Suggest you read the book.

There are several makes tang mounted sites that work well. If long range means several hundred yards, rather than all the way back to end of the pistol pits, then you need a high quality soule type sight, like an MVA, or Baldwin, or Shaver. Don't go cheap on a sight, especially if you want to walk up front and claim 1st place. Once you learn how to use them, high quality soule sights a fast to set up and quick to change setting for different yardages. They flat out work every-time. I have use mine for 20 years and no problems.

Kelley or MVA X long range ladder soule. I prefer having it etched on both sides. Also, a front sight with an internal level.
