In response to YOUR needs, Marlin brought out the incredible GUIDE GUN Series of rifles. These handy and quality rifles have been a tremendous success with shooters all over the world. We offer the Guide Gun Owner a special set of SKINNER SIGHTS that includes a "RAMPED FRONT" that is .070" wide. This special front sight reduces snagging in the scabbard and brush, is wide enough to see quickly yet narrow enough to not obscure the target. Our Guide Front Sight is nicely serrated on the back to reduce glare.
The SKINNER EXPRESS SIGHT blends the lines and beauty of this Classic Rifle. This sight sits .062" lower than our standard 336 / 1895 sight allowing the use of a lower front sight than our standard receiver sight.
Elegant and functional this sight fits all 336 / 1895 style receivers.

(While this sight looks amazing on ALL large frame Marlins, it is exceptionally attractive on the Octagon Barreled Cowboy)
Windage adjustment is accomplished by sliding the dovetail piece left or right in its slot. The fit is tight, so you may need a BRASS PUNCH to move it. Once adjusted, it is locked in place with the set screw on top of the sight in front of the peep. When adjusting,move the rear sight in the direction you want to bullet impact to move.
Elevation adjustment is accomplished by turning the peep on its threaded shaft to raise or lower the aperture. One half turn will move the point of impact about 2 inches at 100 yards, depending on your sight radius. The aperture can be threaded into the peep stem from either side. Once adjusted, the peep stem is locked in place using the set screw on the side of the dovetail piece.
To install the 1895 or 336 sight it is necessary to remove the dovetail piece to tighten the mounting screw under the dovetail. Caution is required to avoid injury when the dovetail piece is removed. The corners of the dovetail slot are sharp. Use a BRASS PUNCH wooden dowel, or plastic punch to remove the dovetail.
This sight measures .480" from the top of the receiver to the center of the aperture.
