Question Marble Tang Sight



Log in to see fewer ads
Does anybody use a Marble Tang Sight on any of their Winchesters? Do you like it and are there any other sight choices out there? I would like to install it on my 94/22 and it doesn't say if I will need to drill and tap the rifle. Any info will be appreciated.
Thanks

AK

Tang Sight ...

Hello:
You can get the reintroduced No. 2 Tang Sight from Lyman if you want something that looks original.

They work well for a hunting sight. I just picked up a Lyman No. 2 this morning for my new-to-me Winchester 62A.

Edited to say:

I didn't look very closely at the Lyman No. 2 when I bought it. On comparison with the Marbles tang sight. I am going to return the No. 2, and get a Marbles tang sight. I like the larger disc that Marbles has and the provision for windage in the base.

By using the two URLs listed below you can compare the two sights.

I have a Marbles tang sight on my 1885 low wall and just used it yesterday for the first time. A friend and I both shot it quite a bit and we're both on the dark side of 55 years old so the eye's ain't what they used to be. We were both skeptical as the aperture was fuzzy as all get out. None the less we both were pleasantly surprised to find that we shot very well with it.

For esthetics it's a perfect fit for that gun plus we can actually hit the x with fair regularity and we were shooting offhand only.

But it's a pricey little trinket!!

Same Boat for Me

I am looking at both sights and trying to decide. The Marbles is more expensive and may be a better sight for old eyes but it looks more delicate to me. I am also interested in other shooters opinions and experiences on this choice.

I went with the Marbles Tang sight on my Marlin. It's pricey compared to the Lyman but the windage adjustment convinced me it was the better of the two.

It's not nearly as delicate as it looks. Actually seems quite sturdy. The Marble's came with three apertures. May put one on my 62A, but I sure am having a hard time time with that decision.

When I do it I think that I will get the Marble sight. I emailed them about drilling and tapping and you will have to do that with one screw. I would like to see both sights in person to make a choice though.
