so if you can't do that, why not just put on a receiver peep?

Was kinda hoping for the iron sights (still love buckhorns for fast vlose shooting - probably as itis what I learn with!) but with .45 Colt, you are closer to artillery trajectories out at 100yards. Did it 6-7 months ago and it was fun, but was aiming 2-3 feet over the top of teh target to get it in the black! Was trying to find something I could just pop up for the occasional shooting out at that range as it is far and few between. Will have to try it one of these days with Corbon hunting loads and see how it works.

Tang sights are great on lever guns! But to put one on your marlin, it covers the serial number and drilling the second hole would be through the serial#. Marbles makes an adapter that puts two hold down screws very close together, and holds the sight over the serial #. Kind of like a cantilever scope mount. That's why I haven't put one on my Marlin. I have put them on a Win 3030 and a Stevens Favorite. I use the Tuarus tang sight that they make for their 22 pump guns. They are steel, have elevation and windage adjustments and are only $33.
On this gun I needed to have a scope and open sights to compete. So I made a Scope mount and used the tang sight. DR
