I just replace the rear sight with the Skinner peep and dovetail filler blank. Sighted in with just a couple of turns on the elevation and no windage adjustments needed.
I also installed Barrel Band Swivel and Stud .

That's a GOOD LOOKING set up!

Am thinking, that's what I NEED for my 94-22 Mag.

How abouth the front sight? Did you have to go with a taller sight? If so, How much?

Thanks! Virgil B.

That's GREAT!

Already have a fiber optic front and didn't really want to change it.

Mind me asking, how much? and where did you get it?

Thanks! Virgil B.

You are lucky that your front sight worked.I had to change mine to a taller one on my Marlin 39c.

Got my info on price from the Skinner link.

$80.00...Sounds great!

Now I just need to get one!

I order from the Skinner Wed site and he shipped the same day i ordered. I had the sight in a couple of days. My Marlin 39 i used the Williams Sight and my Trapper 94-22 i used a Leupold Compact 4 power scope.

Virgil, I have one on my 39A. It does need the taller front. But I make it work at 50 yards. Cannot sight it in at 100 until I get the taller front.

OK,I guess I don't understand this. You have it sighted in at 50 using the sight you have but to get out to 100 yards you need a taller front? Won't a taller front sight make your barrel go lower or am I backwards in this??? thanks for clarifying

The Skinners are top notch. I have them on several of my Marlins & I'll give you an tip. I always get the bass front sight dovetail insert in .500" tall ($16.00)& file it to the desired height. 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!

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

Can someone tell me what this is?

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

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)

NOOOOOO...

The front sigh is NOT tall enough!

The fiber optic I have on the rifle is aprox. .330 high.

Anyone know how to figure how tall a sigh I need???

Looks to be shooting 6" high at 30 yards.

Am thinking..'Bout .450 Any way to figure this????

Will make a new post on this also.

THANKS !!! Virgil B.

Didn't get any instructions for adjustments with my Skinner sight, but read a test review by John Taffen that explained it.

NOW I know how to "fine tune" after getting the correct front sight.
