So I want to put a ghost ring on my Marlin 336. The problem is I'm looking at XS but I don't know if I have an 'integral ramp' or not. How can I tell?

Look at your front sight. Does it sit in a dovetail cut right into the barrel or does it sit in a dovetail cut into a ramped base that screws into the barrel? If your front sight is behind the front barrel band then it is a "carbine-style" sight that does not have an integral ramp. If it is in front of the barrel band it is probably a "rifle-style" sight that does have an integral ramp.

...but my 336's front sight is in front of the band and it is screwed onto the barrel. I just don't want to get the wrong sight.

Call XS, they will talk you through it.

If it is screwed into the barrel then you have the integral ramp type. Order from XS accordingly. They usually send a front sight that is the right height but sometimes the gun needs a different height sight. XS is very easy to work with on this and they will make sure you are taken care of.

Call XS and ask for Bo. He is the resident gunsmith there. Actually anybody there can help you, but he is the smith on staff.
