Yah, I know, I'm an idiot for trying to drive the factory front sight out of the dovetail but it is what it is. Where in the world do I find a new ramp! I have looked extensively through both Midway and Brownells with no luck. Most of the replacement ramps I am finding either mount with one screw or the two screw holes are not 1" on center like the factory one...I guess I should mention this is for my MXLR that already has a Skinner rear peep mounted on it.

I also guess I should give some of my own background seeing how this is my first post here. Not a gun newbie. I have been reloading and shooting for over 20 years, reload all types of centerfire rifle and pistol cartridges as well as shotshells with every kind of shot you can imagine. I have done some minor gunsmithing, mounting and headspacing barrels, drill and tap for sights, replace triggers, all that stuff. No major machining of any kind.

You would think I would be able to find a replacement part and put it on but..........help?

;D

We can make you a new ramp. I dont put hood slots on them but we can make one for you.

Here is a pic of one I made for the H&R Handi Rifle. (we now offer a rear sight for the Handi's) www.skinnersights.com

Let me know if I can help,

You should be able to get that part right from Marlin. I say should because I have not dealt with them since the plant shutdown / move.

When I get home from work in the morning I'll look in my parts box and see if I have an extra.
If I have one that'll work, and I'm pretty sure I do, you are welcome to it.

Hey, thanks all!

Parson, that's good to know and I'm sure you could build anything sight related on these guns. I am enjoying your rear peep and have been using your "front sight" information (on the website) to figure the correct height front sight I need for it now that my sight radius is 26.5" after adding the peep. I came up with a height of .260". I was driving out the factory sight when I broke the ramp - ack. :-[

Six_gunz and Mountain William, thanks for the offers and PM replied to.

Yes! That's it...I followed the link you gave and clicked schematic which confirms that's the part. Brownells is not the easiest website to get around and I guess I wasn't searching for it correctly. Thanks.

(part 59 in the schematic)

Did you get it resolved?

I put XS sights on mine and I have the original front sight from my MXLR.

If you still need one I will send it to you.

Let me know........................

Just to put a period on this, 450 sniper sent me all the parts I needed (and then, some)!

Thanks again to a great group of fellow shooters!
