Any chance that blade will be offered with a brass inset like the other front sights? If so, I am in!

The steel is ordered and I'm invisioning brass posts and black posts for starters. A sourdough post would be doable but I'm thinking the solid brass post wouldnt be too bad on its own. :)

I'll take one possibly 2, those sights will look great with the tactical rear. The front post won't get knocked around anymore , I'm not the easiest person on gear. Thanks for taking the time to do the R&D on those sights... ;D 2 thumbs up..

I've got an XS sight system on a 30/30 Texan and want to do the tactical front and rear. It's never shot right as the front post is not the right height. I was thinking of ordering a marlin front sight ramp. But now I wont have to. Gun shoots 10" high at 100 yards with the rear sight cranked all the way down.

Would be cool to put a fiber optic on that setup too.

Hello Joe,

I'd say you need a front sight approx. .050" taller. I've got some Steel stock on order and will have some final dimensions when it comes in and I start making a few fronts.

Initially I'll have them available in the 1.0" hole spacing (newer Marlin Prod. since about 2000) and .700" for the older guns.

Grizz: Fiber Optic option will be a lil tough since the post is going to be fairly short front to back. Doable, yes...

:)

Nice thing is that if it's not the right size, it only means a different blade.
