Me too. I'm not a huge fan of semi buckhorns, but the stock Marlin rear sights were pretty much dead-on and I stuck with them on the rifles not tapped on the side.

On the stock buckhorns, I flip the insert over to hide the white diamond, and I put a dab of almond appliance touch-up paint on the gold bead front sight to effect a "poor man's ivory bead." With eyes halfway to 114, I can't see gold beads in sunny conditions. Ivory beads, or white/almond painted beads are just the ticket.

How about a 1903 Springfield rear sight? This is on a 38-55 Marlin Cowboy.

I like the look of that. Where do you get something like that, and where is the mount from? Cost?

Hi there, shootist.

The sight was found in a take off box at a gun shop. I paid $25 for it, as is, then had to make extensive modifications to make it fir the Marlin. The mount is hand made and is drilled for mounting screws that fits the Marlin scope screw holes. The rifle has a Lyman Globe front sight. Believe it or not, when sighted in for 50 yards it is on again at 100 yards. I have not checked it at 75 yards but would bet that it's about 3" high. It is made for long range shooting, not hunting.

09I think it considers LA Escort American piopulation LA Escorts only (Except Asian counries of course) as LA Asian Escort most young girls in America are crazy about their chastity.
I know one girl who was dating LA Asian Escorts with her boyfriend about 5 years but they did not have sex and she is still virgin.
