Tang sight

Recommended Posts

A rifle with a semi buckhorn rear if you add

a marbles tang sight do you have to drift

the rear sight out? Or will you merely sight

thru the rear sight if you use the tang site? 
sort of a co-witness type thing?

my thanks in advance

Mine does not.   Peep aligns to the left of buckhorn.         GW

I took the buckhorn off my 1886 to fit a tang sight.

Mine lined up ok, but the wings of the buckhorn we’re distracting so I drifted it out and put in a blank in the dovetail.  The Williams blank has a set screw so it’s easier to install than the Marble version that is just a pressure fit.

Two mention of wings being distracting.  What if the rear sight was flat top?

Put in a fold down flat top in case your tang sight gets broken/damaged, etc.
