hey, just wanted to throw a little FYI your way on the skinner tactical sights i purchased not too long ago.
i wasn't a fan of the buckhorn sights on my 336 marlin ss. i just couldn't get comfortable with them, and i couldn't shoot all that well with them either.
in the end, i decided to go with the SKINNER TACTICAL PEEP SIGHT. and i am overall pretty happy with my choice. here is a link to skinner's sights.
Marlin peep sights
i asked the good folks at skinner not to carve "tactical" on the side of my sights and they happily honored that request. (i just thought having the work "tactical" on the side of a lever gun seemed a bit out of place.) the tactical version is really only a protected version of their standard peep sight.
there were a few hiccups along the way. i was told before purchase the front sight might be too low for it, but i hoped it wouldn't be problem for me.
but it was
in the end, i had to order a higher front sight, and file it to fit. i considered this to be a bit of a PITA, but you must know i am a fan of "ready to fit" and "drop in" accessories, so for others it may be no problem.
in the end though....very worth it. i love this sight! it has removable apertures for different situations, it has a great windage adjustment (no banging on sight required
) the sight looks pretty good, and it's a good SS match to my gun.
most of all, it just makes the shooting so much easier and more fun for me. i put 3 shots together right around one inch at 50 yards with these new irons.
then, i busted up some canteolpes for fun. my marlin has always been my favorite looking and handling gun. now, it shoots as good as it looks.
i will also say skinner provides EXCELLENT customer service. don't hesitate if you are interested in their products.
