Marko ... I had my head securely up my arse when I made that statement. I was recalling something I read a year or two ago on Skinners sight and applied it to my situation, but my situation was the opposite.

I need to file my current sight. My rear sight is maxed out on height. ... I'm zeroed on 50, but want to try open irons for some of our 100 rf shoots. (Won a couple lately with scopes, so next year, I'm gonna try open irons) smile Should be lotsa fun ... I hope.

If I don't get around to it, I'll probably shoot the mountie that has a williams rear peep. I like the idea of the longer sight radius of the standard 39A. Time will tell. I'd like to get my wife shooting with the open irons on the Mountie!! smile

My 1894 needed almost all of the .500" height but my 39A needed filing down to about .355" Easy to trim & you have plenty to work with from the get-go. Best money I've ever spent on aftermarket sights! Good luck!


Can someone tell me what this is?

He meant "BRASS"insert to slide into his factory front sight base.

Thanks! Virgil B.


I put a Skinner on my 444 a couple years back and did have to change out the front sight. I had a few laying around and used one I think came off a 700 that fit the bill.

Been trying to figure out how to order from the Skinner website.

Just don't get it.

They say you can't order over the phone, and can't figure out how to use the "cart" to order on line.

Any clues? Thanks!

Called, and got ahold of the people at Skinner Sights.

They helped me figure out how to "order"

Got my sight on the way for my 94-22 Mag.

Now...to hurry up and WAIT! (grin!)

Decided to go with some washers underneath the rear sight to get me where I want to be. That way I won't have to mess with my current sight which I kinda like. (factory white dot)

Skinner peep sight arrived in yesterday's mail.

Will get it installed today...Hoping the front sight is tall enough.
