I need a taller front sight for the 336 w ramp. Marbles seems slimmer at the base and I wanted to hear from the experience you guys have. what is the best brand to match with marlin? I like a thin post.

I've always loved the ivory sights too, but... These new fiber optic sights sure are easy to see.

I'd sure like to hear some feedback on this from you'all.

How old are your eyes?

Williams and Tru Glo fiber optic sights are what keep me shooting iron sights at 60. They make a HUGE difference, and I have them on my 336, 10/22, 7600 Whelen, my T/C Grayhawk, and 870 slug guns.

Low light, good light, as long as there's some light, you'll see the little bugger.

Have you thought of a Lyman globe front sight and a Marbles tang sight. I have them on my 45-70 and they work fine. Also, Marbles gold front sight, white would probably be better, and Marbles tang sights on my two 1894's. There is also a Marbles bullseye rear barrel sight from Buffalo Arms Co.

The eyes are on the tail end of 43 ;D However, I had Lasik performed on both eyes 11yrs ago and all is still good.

I use a Williams WGRS peep on the rear paired with a Williams Firesight front post on my 336CS/.35.

What's nice about the Williams Firesite, other then the glow, is the bead is only 1/16" I believe, very little target is obstructed.
You can still "see" that bead until after sunset most days.

What about using a Marbles Uni-Ramp Front Sight? Williams uses a dove-tail fiber optic sight in the stock ramp.

The Marbles Uni-Ramp Sight is a fiber-optic one piece design which I think makes it easier to remove when you are taking the rifle apart. I find that the barrel bands are hard to remove without removing the stock front sight as well. The stock design has a screw under the dove tail, which means you need to remove the front sight in order to remove the ramp...The uni-ramp front sight eliminates this issue.
