1894c Marlin front sight question

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Refresh my memory as to who makes the large brass bead front sight for my Marlin 1894c? Drawing a blank here.

Contact Slick McClade. He has them on his sight, I’m sure there are some others as well.;)

Same here, Pard!

But the only one shown on Slick's website is for the Marble's style 94 Cowboy.

I have been looking for one for my wife's Marlin 94S (which is the same as a 94C). 

I think I will have to make one.

A primer shell makes a good one.  Pick out the anvil, clean out the priming compound and cut a little notch in the wall so that it will fit.  A little epoxy and bingo.

The carbine Sight is for the 1894C

Slick,

So your Sure Hit sight will fit a 1894C (carbine?) base?

I thought that the 1894C with a hood and 1894S also with a hood used the same base

They both have a screw-down base instead of a dovetail right in the barrel.

They sure looked alike to me.

So that's good to know.  Now I need to order TWO from you.

Much obliged,

MG

They are made like a canoe and fit over the small factory sight blade. It’s not a replacement for the entire sight base .

I've used Slick's product on my Cowboy Competition and the wife's 1894 CS and both worked excellent. You'll be purchasing from a great Pard. He'll be there for support if you need it.
