I just got a 1972 35 remington 336. It has the rear sight base, but is missing the elevator and folding leaf. Any good replacements that don't require changing the front sight? Any place to buy the folding leaf and elevator? Thanks.

With Marlin gone under I would replace it with a Marbles 3/8 dovetail sight of the same general type. Give Brownells a look and call their tech support to get one of the proper height.

You might also scare up a replacement on Ebay but don't expect the typical Ebay seller to know squat about what it will or will not fit.


The only thing muzzle energy ever killed was time that could have been spent shooting meat and learning something about how bullets work.

Just got the sight from Bob's Gun Parts. Just like an original for $35 shipped. Which way is the old sight driven out while looking from buttstock to front sight? Is it left to right?

Yup that’s correct. Left to right from the back and the install is right to left.
