I have a new-to-me 444P and I'm considering installing a Skinner sight.

For anyone with a 444P that has mounted a Skinner, 1) which model did you go with and 2) did you have to change to a higher front sight?



I read that Marlins tend to need a higher front sight when changing to an aperture sight. I also read that the Skinner Express sits 0.062" lower than the Standard Skinner or the Alaskan. If this is correct, assuming a sight radius of 22" on a 444P, if my math is right, an Skinner Express sight would provide about 10" lower impact at 100 yards (if leaving the front sight the same height) compared to the Standard or Alaskan.
