The Original Lumpy Gritz

New Marlin 94 front sight

Recommended Posts

:blush:

I should have indicated, that I was 'talking' about the 'Bear Buster' front sights. 

Also-I would use a slotted screw instead of the more modern Allen type.

Yea, I figured that was the case.  Although the Skinner rear sight is a modern version of the Hepburn that I think was available on Marlin rifles before 1900.

Oops!  On checking Lt. Col. William S. Brophy's big book of Marlins page 638, the Hepburn sight was introduced in 1903.

Probably a question for the ROC

 

From SHB pg 35

Rifle Sights

Tang mounted rear sights may utilize changeable “peep” apertures and eyecups.
No bolt or receiver mounted sight is permitted.
Dovetails may be milled in the barrel for sight replacement.
Beach style front sights and sight hoods are allowed.
Front sights may include a bead or insert of steel, iron, ivory, faux ivory, brass,
gold, pewter, copper, or silver. The bead or insert shall be the color of the material.
Rear sights may utilize an insert of the same color as the rear sight to allow easy
sight adjustment.
Ramp style front sights are allowed if original to the firearm.
Modern style click adjustable barrel or receiver sights are not allowed.

 

I know that some Marlins came from the factory with ramp style front sights However, the stickler is 'does the Bear Buster ramp style front sight meet the criteria of the second to last sentence. For a Marlin I think the answer is yes. But I have been wrong many times before.

Looks OK from here. 

Will verify with the ROC now that things have settled down some.
