I'm planning to get AO ghost ring sights for my 1894 LTD, but on the cabelas website it says "Fits a Marlin 336 or 1894 model rifle with 3/8 inch dovetail in the barrel." Does that mean they will work on a marlin with a ramp front sight.

If I'm not mistaken, the ramp front sight is attached to the rifle by that 3/8" dovetail on the barrel.

So yes, it'll fit.

Remove the dovetail by lightly tapping it from left to right (looking at it from back to front) with a small hammer on a small wooden dowel.

It has to do with the height of the front sight. The ones designed for the rifles with a front ramp have a shorter front sight. The ones the mount directly into a dovetail on the barrel are much higher. If you call the company directly they will send you the proper height front sight.
