I have an oppertunity to P/U a Williams 5D-94-36 for free but can,t seem to find anything that lists this Peep fitting a 1895ss anyone have some input on this for me I do read it will fit a 336 mounting via the tapped reciever holes but nothing on the 1895
Any Input would be great Thanks

Reddog, well, you can drill and tap the side of your receiver if it does not have the holes on either side of the ejector post that protrudes through the side. I'm not sure the year Marlin stopped drilling for the side mount. Or you can get a fp336, I think they sit higher and are note quite as nice for that reason.... so if your 95 has the two screws below the pin on the upper right of this picture you can use your 94-36... Otherwise its the fp336.

Good Luck!

reddog, you may or may not need a taller front sight. You're going to have to shoot it with the ammo you shoot most or hunt with to determine that.. From my experience I usually have to put a taller front sight on with the Williams. You're lucky with your 1895SS, mine wasn't drilled and tapped for the side mount...

Yea after I read your Post I went to the lockup and took a look Mines a JM stamped 22 inch 45-70 ss model I believe It,s a 1999 so I,m assuming those two screws are just hole fillers for the sight screws and nothing more

Hey again Rd -- The front sight is a trial and error sorta thang. I like to have the aperture of choice sitting on the top of the receiver and having a 50 yard zero. This will give all the elevation I can get out of the sight if I need it. Whatever the load and front sight combination gets me there is what I use.

The sight mounting screws are covered by the bridge. They need to be snug, but are easily over-torqued. Be careful.

Hope this helps. Best regards. Wind

Good looking out Wind I,m sure green or blue locktight is out of the Question with this app so care in tightening is a feel thing which I,m good at (famous LAST words)
Ounce I have the sight in hand and pull the filler screws I,ll get a good eyeball on what I have to deal with
Thanks The DOGG!!!
