I put Tect Sights on my marlin 70 this weekend. Got them sighted in but going to play with the rear sight as it cocked just a bit when I mounted it. I used a 1 inch bullseye at 25 yards. One shot went low but I was to blame for that. Going to mess with the mounting and sight it in again next weekend. I posted the last 3 targets I shoot after the final adjustments were made. This is my range Marlin so I dont mind tikering with the sights.

I noticed the rear peep hole was almost against the left side of the rear sight. I saw it was tilted to one side. I contacted Tech sights and they said some people have seen this issue. He mentioned a couple issues. One was quality control on the manufacturing of the receiver. To fix this he suggested a shin be placed to level the rear sight. I fashioned a shin and installed it. I attached 2 pictures. The pic from the rear was taken from the right side of the butt so the sight looks off a bit. From the rear it looks straight. I must say the customer service at Tech Sights were nice and helpful.

I started out using Winchester M22 but seemed to have some bad luck. A few ejection issues and a couple rounds sounded under powered. It is HV 1255 fps but some seemed off. I switched to CCI SV 1070 fps and went through a 50 round box with not one issue. I posted the last 4 targets I shot. These were on the 25 yard range.
