    Try a set Skinner peeps - you will not regret it. Whoever owned the rifle before you probably removed the rear sight to put glass on it - I wish people would quit doing that to Marlins. We see a lot of that sort of abuse over on the Marlin Owners Forum and it is always sad to see.

    So let me ask, is yours a 30-30 and what are the first two digits of the serial number ... I'll date it for you. If there are letters, then let me know what the first two letters are.

    Congrats on the new levergun.

    The rifle is already drilled and tapped for Lyman reciever sights which are target grade click adjustable. Look at the left side of the reciever and you will see it. Just but that and you are set.

    ...it's a 12XXXXXX...that's an '88, right? it has a crossbolt safety(gag)...we've taken the scope off...he nor I like them...the iron sight in front needs a hood and the rear sight has been driven out of the dovetail...he wants it for defense so he wants open sights...I may see what XS has...he's got 73-year-old eyes...he's had it in the closet about 3 years and I finally convinced him to bring it out...and to buy a 94 Buffalo Bill Commemorative rifle...not the high-dollar one...the working model....30-.30 will get a lot done...and we bought quite a bit of ammo back in the real world...

    ...thanks for the reply...I'm checking out the peeps...

    For defense, simply don't screw either of the supplied apertures in, and you have a great " ghost ring" sight for quick close in work.

    Yep, an '88.

    The Skinners will allow you to use different apertures for your particular tastes. And you can choose to go with winged front and rear add-ons to protect your front and rear sights if you'd like. They are technically ghost ring apertures - do some research, read about them from users, and you'll probably want to give them a try.

    ... if not, you should be able to get rear replacement notched sights for your rifle either on eBay or through numrich.

    ...I'll check further...a normal peep would be too hard for him...a larger-opening ghost ring would do it...I like the wings for SD and carrying in the truck...appreciate the help...

    The factory iron sight on a Marlin 336 are better IMO than those on any other weapon I own. I just love them; I had a Daisy lever action BB gun as a kid so maybe thats part of it. Learned to shoot on that type and nothing has ever been better or equal. I do second the peep sight, put one on a Thompson Center Hawken and I really noticed a difference in my groups. Old eyes < Iron sights of any kind but we do what we can.

    NOT TO WORRY, This set up (on my model 94 but I have also done this on a 336) takes care of both problems.

    The cross bolt safety conversion is made by Clyde Ludwig in Wisconsin.

    ...thanks, Trooper Joe...we won't mess with his crossbolt safety except to slip an Oring on it...but I like those large ghost ring sights enough to get them for my own...would I have to change the existing front sight, too??? who made yours???

    This is an Ashley "Ghost ring" sight set up. I suppose you could use the stock front, but the "post style" front is much nicer.

    Good luck,

    I like the factory buckthorns myself. They just seem to work, even with my aging eyes. They can be ordered in expensively from Midway USA. Marbles also offers some options that will fit the factory dovetail.
