Skinner Aperture Sight

Recommended Posts

I put a Skinner aperture sight on my Marlin 336 a while back. I went with the dovetail replacement version rather that the receiver mounted model. I find out after installing it that the front sight was now way too short and I was shooting about 8-10” high at 50 yards.

After ordering their replacement front sight I am loving the rifle even more than unused to. This setup is waaayyy better than the stock buckhorn sight setup. I was shooting around a 1.5” group at 50 yards word of my range bag. 

I did notice that this older model (1970’s) doesn’t have a perfectly flat reciever on the top. The dovetail and front sight aren’t on exactly the same straight line looking down the barrel from the hammer. Doesn’t effect the accuracy, just looks a little different. Anyone else noticed this in the older 336’s?
