    Marlin 1895 Receivers drilled and tapped?

    I was looking at a couple of Guide Guns at the show and noticed that one was D&T for receiver sights and one was not. I looked at my old 1972 model 1895 and saw that it was D&T. Does anyone know when Marlin stopped doing this on the Guide Guns?

    Re: Marlin 1895 Receivers drilled and tapped?

    Just saw this post and had to look at my 1895GS to see. Mine is a 2008 and is not drilled for a receiver sight. Guess I will have to go with a skinner or XS sight for a peep if I go that route. Strange that they stopped drilling the receiver.

    I'm not sure its strange, but I think its stupid. Cant save more than a few $ a gun and alot of people, myself included, like the side mounted peep sights.

    I think maybe 2001 was when the change occured. I have a two 2001 1895 Cowboys. One is D&T'd and one is not. I also have a 2000 1894 and it is D&T'd.

    What gets me is that the Cowboy is not drilled for the tang sight! Go figure.
    I'm gaining slowly but still gaining. Can't have enough old Marlins!

    I'm another who likes the side tapped. Its generally the second thing a new gun gets, first being a Ludwig safety delete.
