Can someone with a factory rear sight possibly take a measurement for me??? What I am looking for is the measurement from the top of the barrel to the bottom of the rear sight notch in mm. and what range their gun is setup for at that height. I have no factory rear sight otherwise I would do it myself. I am working on adapting a much nicer rear fully adjustable sight install and need this before I proceed to make sure it will go down as low as the factory rear sight. Thanks, Jeremiah.

Hey there roboskittle -- Welcome to Marlin Owners. You didn't mention what rifle you are working on. Marlin's can have several varieties of rear sights. You might consider going ahead and installing your rear sight with the understanding you may have to replace the front sight as well. Between the two you should be able to sort out the desired ranges you would like to shoot. Hope this helps. Best regards. Wind

It is a Marlin 30AS. I am just trying to get a rough idea before I go through all the trouble of mounting this dude up. I have no problem mounting a new front sight I have a drawer full of them off of other guns that will probably work fine.
