Silver may look pretty but when light hits it the sight picture may jump around quite a bit. Notice that most of the old Marbles and similar sights had copper/bronze beads . Those ole dead guys knew. Copper!!!! And an Indian head looks best.

I've a front sight taken off an 1893 Marlin that fits the sandwich description but it appears to be a factory sight. That or someone was good!
