    For 1894c: Brockman peep sights?

    I haven't been able to find an adjustable peep sight for my 1894c...but was considering a set of the adjustable Brockman peep sights as advertised in Miday USA's catalog (page 684). Does anyone have any experience with these sights? They are expensive, but after seeing how the Skinners failed on my gun, maybe I should spend a little more for something that can be adjusted. I plan to mate the Brockmans with a Merit adjustable aperture as well.

    They shoot over a foot high...replaced the front sight twice and ground down the rear peep post so much that there is no adjustment left....still have a goofy looking too tall front sight and a non adjustable rear peep on a gun that still isn't sighted in correctly. Skinner has an interesting design..looks good too but the base for the rear sight is WAY too thick for the 1894c platform and what a rear peep should do.

    I have a Williams Marlin FP336 set on my 1894C. The stock front sight was too low (shot high) but the Firesight that came with the Williams is just right. I did not need to use the hammer extension and, although it came close, the sight did not interfere with the hammer-block safety. I paid $60.

    Sounds to me like you have a barrel/receiver issue. I don't know what you are grinding down on the rear sight but the grinding should be done on the front. I don't think going to a Brockman will help.

    I have Skinner on my 1894C, and own Wild West, XS and Brockmans. I can't imagine they are superior in any way to the Skinner. Better figure out what is wrong.

    If your gun is shooting HIGH, and your rear sight is bottomed out, then your front sight is too SHORT.
    Check the Skinner website (or call). He will be able to get you the proper front sight to go with your current rear sight.

    Bingo!!! I second this. Unless there is something wrong with your gun. Skinner sights are second to none hit up their section of the forum for help.

    Thanks for all of the replies; Of course I consulted Skinner first and got their recommendations....their recommended front sight wasn't tall enough so I went higher....it eventually got to within 3" or so from my point of aim at 50 yards, but now the sight snags badly and it is loose in the dovetail because of it. The rear Williams isn't what I am looking for either....the gun goes in a scabbard where that portion of the sight sticking out on the side of the receiver will cause me problems. I would like to go back to the original front sight or some other sight of the same profile, and I do like the winged portion of the Brockmans for durability. I just noticed the Williams WGRS in the Midway catalog......would that rear peep work on the 1894c? The catalog just lists it for "Marlin Lever Actions".
