    Hey guys I ave a Marlin 336 chambered in 44 mag. It has a "Z" date code for 1964. The reciever is drilled on the left side with two small holes for a peepsight. My question is if I want to put something time-period correct on it what would be the best choice? Thanks ahead of time for any help, Anthony

    I imagine the up and overs would be correct since that's what the rifle is D&T for. I found Lyman to be mechanically weak.

    I think Lyman and Williams are your two choices in this style sights. The Lymans used to be all steel, although they haven't changed the appearance since going to partial aluminum. I think the Lymans look the best and I have had good luck with them.

    Well I know about the williams, I have a set on my 1894 .357. This one is drilled and tapped on the left side of the reciever. The top is too, like most 336's are for the typical mount, but I want to put the sights on the left to make the gun like it was. Thanks for the info, I think im gonna go for an old set of steel lymans.

    I have several williams and have never had a problem with them. Never tried lyman. If you hunt with them they make a twilight aperature.
