Just tried to mount the ML-12-05 on my new 1894 Marlin. The screw hole spacing for the front ramp was right but the back of the ramp hits the  front barrel band. I've got a note into Bo Wallace for help. I don't recall this problem being discussed before but I could have missed it. Kind of disipointing. I may try to sight it in tomorrow with the bead that's on it. The receiver part fits fine.

Chief:

Mine fits fine. Can you slip the band back a little? Believe me, that AO front sight makes all the difference in rapid target acquisition.

Chief RID,
    Did you get your sight system worked out yet? I've been looking forward to hearing about your results and opinions.             IDShooter

Got a reply from Bo Wallace at Ashley. Seems marlin mis-drilled about 1500 barrels with the barrel band .220 to far forward. I got one. Well he has a fix already and I am returning my front for the replacement.

I guess we will have to wait a while to try things out but I will probably shoot it tomorrow with the stock front bead. I'll report tomorrow evening.

Well, I tried the peep out without the front sight. The bead looked good but at 80 yds. I could not get on the paper. Moved up to 10 yds and it placed them two inches high. Thought this ought to be good back at 80 but not. I had the thing screwed completely down. I think it was still hitting high but can't be sure. I will probably wait until the front post gets here to try again. I will probably go with the smaller apeture fron the bench for sighting also and then put the bigger one back on.

Chief RID, Don't feel bad I had the same problem last year. They will make it right, and it's well worth the wait!           God Bless  Hippie
