    I'm going to be ordering a peep sight for my Marlin 1894CSS soon and I'm torn between getting the Skinner Express and the Skinner Tactical (which has protective wings). I like the look of the express but I'm concerned about sturdiness. My question to skinner sight owners out there is this: is the exposed sight on the express rugged enough that a little banging around won't affect accuracy? Anyone have any trouble with the sight shifting? Thanks!

    Not sure, thinking of getting one myself for my H&R .45 Colt carbine.
    I have an aluminum Williams guide receiver sight on it now, and that's been a rugged litle sight, just a PITA to adjust with the tiny screws. I want to upgrade to Skinners.

    Pretty tough sights, you can pound your buddies scopes to smithereens with the peep and still not lose your POI.

    Also take a look at XS Sight Systems, their ghost ring set up is the cat's meow.

    I think short of blatant abuse, it will hold up fine.
    This one is the loaner sight from Marlinowners.com. It's "been around the block" and still looks and wsorks great.
