            THE GUIDE  GUN SET

Guide_Set_E 







         


  
       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. 

             $79 in Blued Steel                    $85 in Stainless Steel

(note: Proper Front Sight Heights vary for numerous reasons. We ship a 1/4"X.500" sight with the Guide Gun Set.  This sight can be "trimmed" to whatever height is needed.  If you would rather have a different front sight, order the standard RELIABLE and add the front sight needed from our FRONT SIGHT page)

Note:  For added features or for non Guide Gun models,  please order the RELIABLE or XA and add the features you desire seperately. (Black Gold, Fiber Optic Front, etc)

AS RUGGED AS THE MEN AND AS BEAUTIFUL AS THE WOMEN WHO LIVE THERE.....

This sight covers the full length of the 1895 or 336 (or any of the large frame Marlins) receiver flat, blending the lines even further than the beautiful EXPRESS Sight.

                             ADJUSTING THE SKINNER SIGHT

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 RELIABLE 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.
