Anyone ever have any luck with a skinner express rear sight lining up with the factory front sight on the 336w? I want to keep front sight if possible.

In general with most Skinner sights on Marlins you will need to get a higher front sight. The ideal way to set it up is to get it to shoot to point of aim at 50 yrds with the rear peep in it's lowest position. That will give you about 2-4inch high at 100 yrds.

Cool appreciate that. Anyone know what front sight will be perfect for the skinner express?

Or....shoot targets further out. I expect it will work fine out around 400 yards. I know some of our members or former members are tapping the 1000 yard steel targets with their 30-30's.
