    Schtoolee,

    - front of receiver at barrel to rear side hole = 4.390 inches (1894 diagram shows 3.348 & 3.344)
    - between side holes = .405 inches ..................................(1894 diagram shows .405 & .400)
    - top of receiver down to side hole = .563 inches ...............(1894 diagram shows .646 & .642)

    The first and the 2nd diagrams are different from one another?
    Am I seeing this wrong or is the 336 hole placement different than the 1894? Are the 336 and 1894 receivers the same dimensions?

    I always thought they would be at the same highth. The receiver is longer on the 336, so I can understand the length.

    I am not at home right now, so I can't check until after about 12 am tonight.
    But the drawings came from Marlin, so I am assuming the drawings are right.

    Thanks. It'll be fun to see how it solves.

    Finally checked the 336, and the 1894 receiver, and they match the drawings.

    I also checked the Williams peep sights.
    The 336, and the 1894 use too different model sights.

    It looks like some of the measurements on 1894 are different than the 1895 and 336 etc.

    I'm still confused on why the 1894 diagram has 2 values for some of the measurements, as shown here:

    - front of receiver at barrel to rear side hole, 1894 diagram shows 3.348 & 3.344 inches
    - between side holes, 1894 diagram shows .405 & .400 inches
    - top of receiver down to side hole, 1894 diagram shows .646 & .642 inches

    I know we are talking only 4 or 5 thou but why would this be?

    Not sure why, but must be close enough tolerance to work.
    Only way to find out, would be to talk to the right person, that worked at the original Marlin factory.

    That is great! Thanks for all that. I know of one member here who worked at the M Factory but you probably do too. I forget his name.
    .004 - .005 is pretty slight but it would be neat to see why they did that.

    One more thing. Can you tell me if Williams used a beveled head screw or a fillister shaped screw head on those sights?
    I've got the fillister style here which would require a flat bottomed hole on the site base. I thought a beveled head might hold the sight in place with less play than a fillister head; the beveled head would stay centered in the beveled hole better.

    I don't own a William's, but all of my Lyman, and Redfield ones have the fillister type.
    And no, never worked at Marlin, but have been collecting them, since I was 16.

    I bet your collection of Marlins would turn heads.

    That's all I need to know. If fillister works for Lyman and Redfield I'll use them. I am going to try to make a thread out of this little sight base project I am doing here.

    Fantastic thanks. Talk to ya later.
