Just aword from an old codger who has been around the block a few times...Get the Marble Tang sight.It is superior to the lyman and it has adjustment for moving the bullet imact right or left .
Go with the receiver sight. The Lyman 66 series is a good choice. The tang sight...look cool but are not as usable as the receiver sight. The tang sight can be a bit awkward when carrying in the field.
Mostly use the tang sights when looking for a certain style...can't see where they do anything "better" or faster than a good reciever sight, but they do just look "right" on some guns. A repro. Win. 73 wth a reciever sight kind of makes my eyes hurt...and a BLR with a tang sight would do same thing to me.
For a gun that might get a lot of differnt loads used in a year (like your 44mag.) an easy to adjust reciever sight seems the much better choice.
Not to cause any arguement, but everyone has their own personal favorite, and opinions.
Depending on your use, and personal likes, here are some things to consider. and of course these are my observations, I have owned all of the sights you are looking at and each has it's own advatanges:
Lyman: Low cost
Good if you shoot at a set distance, and don't
plan to make changes especially windage.
Williams: Great sight, if you have no tang.
Get the Target knobs.
Lock the elevation screw, after adjusting.
Marbles: Positive click movement elevation/windage.
Positive up position will not move w/recoil.
Lyman & Marbles will give you the longest sight radius.
I have Williams on a T/C and Marbles on 3 Levers & 1 Low Wall.
Have Fun Shooting,
