I have ordered a new Marbles Tang Sight for my Marlin 1893.
I have read that there is a clearance problem, and that the bolt often hits the sight when cycling.
Is this still an issue?

Thanks!

I had read that too and searched out an original vintage Lyman tang sight to mount. The bolt does not hit it.

On my 1893 it does, just enough to remove/scratch bluing from the shaft.
