Marble Arms® Improved Peep Tang Additional Components
Marble Arms® has improved the classic peep tang sight to accommodate all shooters regardless of the distance that they shoot. The cowboy shooter and hunter both have asked to have the ability to shoot at 30 yards out to 500 yards and in some cases 1000 yards with the same gun and sight. We have taken our popular Marble Arms® Peep Sight that has elevation and windage adjustment and made it more versatile in the field.
Marble Arms® Improved Peep Tang Sight Screw Set
*Some commemorative or limited addition models may have variation in the screw length.
The sight base remains mounted to the tang as before and with a twist of the setscrew the post is removed.
Select the post height that you want and press the post into place firmly then tighten the setscrew.
These highly precision CNC machined parts match up every time for repeatability. The guide stud is machined from 4140 steel and heat treated for strength and hardness. We machined graduation lines on the elevation barrel, which adjusts in .004” increments per click. We have also added a jam nut to lock in your elevation. This gives you the advantage of pre-setting an assortment of uprights to be locked in at desired yardage.
We have made this sight to be used by the traditional long-range shooters as an alternate to a Vernier or Soule style sight. You can purchase (separately) additional shorter posts as well as mid and long-range posts, giving you the versatility to shoot many guns out over 1000 yards. The long-range post has 2 inches of elevation adjustment. All of our sights are machined with the same care and quality that we that has been a tradition for over 110 years.
