    Marlin 336 recevier scope mount screw thread sizes

    Hi all, my name is Gareth Holland and I am a game keeper and Deer manager on an estate in Somerset Southern England. I use a marlin 336 30-30 for woodland stalking (hunting) Roe deer. I use a 3-12x50 scope on swing off mounts, I would like to fit a receiver site but the rear site base is in the way. I have purchased a Lyman site which I rather like, the solution would seem to be to move the rear site base forward and re-tap new screw threads. Now you all know and I know what a brilliant calibre this is for woods work on small deer (a very big Row Buck is 90-100lb) but technical information is a bit thin on this side of the pond. Guy's help me out, I guise the thread size is in A.N.F. can you please tell me the thread side to re-tap the receiver. Ps the reason for a scope that size is that when you are looking in the woods, the deer are in the fields and you may be shooting at 200yds. I hand load Speer 130gr fp. at 2500 fps, Zero 180yrds 1in high at 50yds 2in high at 100yds 1in high at 150yds & 2in low at 200yds. Thanks Gareth

    There are better areas of this forum to ask questions and get answers too. Look over the entire forum so in the future you`ll know where to go.

    Welcome from Oregon. Have you considered a Tang Sight? Then you wouldn't have to move the scope.

    Hi, scope is on Apel quick detachable mounts so is no problem. I picked up a tang site at the same time but am taken with the receiver site, its just that information on lever guns is a bit thin on the ground this side of the pond. thanks Gareth.
