I'm planning to upgrade the sights on my 1894SS. The choice is between these two sights:

http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=799753

Which one do you all recommend? Thanks.

Hi,
Check in with Doc Skinner and his Skinner sights for the Marlin lever actions
www.skinnersights.com He will work with you and they are reasonable.

Both sights are illegal for Cowboy Action Shooting.

The first sight is for a rifle with a ramp front sight.

The second (Williams) sight is for a rifle with a dove tail front sight.

Personally, I would go for the Williams sight. It is on sale and is much less expensive. Plus, I like the tube front sight.

Another sight to consider is the Marbles Tang Sight.

It's adjustable for windage and elevation with knobs that have detent clicks. I memorize the clicks and can go 50 to 100 yards and be on. Also comes with different arpeture sizes. I think your Marlin tang is already drilled for it. I carry it in a saddle scabbard and it has held it's zero.
