    "Creedmoor" rear tang sight for 1895 CB

    Hey All,

    Does anyone know if these sights will fit the 1895 and if so, any experience with them.

    Andy –

    I don’t know for sure

    For a tang sight have you looked at Buffalo Arms?

    I’m gonna try a tang this year on my CB

    Still not sure yet, which one… a long or a mid-range

    You can check out this site too... www.montanavintagearms.com and they do make a base for the Marlin 1895. The quality of the sight is about the best you are going to find, customer service is good too.

    Hey there Andy M - I'd can't answer your question as to whether it will fit or not. Depends on how your tang is set up (or not). If it is not drilled and tapped now, and you are willing to do so, you should have no problem getting a sight installed. The main issue is the relationship between tang length and open bolt length. Most sight manufacturers have all this sorted out for you. Some sights mount with their proprietary screws and some use the tang (stock) screw along with a forward sight base screw. If your tang is already drilled and tapped for sight base screws, then your sight base holes will have to align with the existing screw holes. Check the centers on these holes and confirm with the retailer that the holes in the sight base are the same. If you are not drilled and tapped, generally all you need to know is that the sight will clear the open bolt if installed according to the directions for the given rifle. Then go about drilling and tapping.

    With all that said, I am a big fan of the Montana Vintage Arms sights. If you get another rifle down the road, all you would need is a second base mounted, and you could reuse your staff on the second rifle also. I'd be willing to bet at least two nickels that they have a sight and base for your rifle. They are not cheap, but a quality sight is money well spent.

    Here are a few pictures of one of my sights on a Winchester 1894. There is miles of room with the sight elevated, but it gets kinda cramped with the sight folded. I have huge hands and have no problems with laying my thumb along side the tang. It will become second nature in short order for you too.

    Hope this helps. Best regards. Wind
