Marbles Tang Sight Install

    I need a little help about a Marbles Tang sight.
    If I install the recommended Marbles Tang sight on my 1970 model Marlin 336, I will drill and tap a hole in the middle of the serial number. I can't do that. I will go to jail for altering the serial number of a firearm.
    It does not make sense that Marbles would sell something like this.
    Has anyone else run into this?

    But I believe the current Marbles 336 tang sight has a short enough base to miss drilling the serial number.


    This from Marbles webpage FAQ:

    The serial number on the 1970's model 336 is right up next to the tang screw. Actually it would need a sight base about 1 1/2" long to clear the number.

    I have a 30-30 Stevens 325C, it has no serial number whatsoever, and it came from the factory that way?

    I read on another forum that your serial number could be on the side of the tang. You have to take the stock off to see it.

    Serial numbers were not required by law until the 1968 Gun Control Act was put into law.
