I have a 1886 with a Marbles #2 on the front and a filed down buckhorn on the rear. What sights would be correct for this rifle? ser. 124603

For the rear sight, options are listed on page 83 & 84 of Madis' sight book (Sight 24D and 24E). This is identical to what is on my Winchester 1886 in .33 WCF. For a front sight, they typically would be the ones with the tiny ivory bead -- I think it was called the Standard Sporting front sight.

As mrcvs stated the 24D&E on the rear and the Lyman #4 hunting for front was the most common. As on this 33 http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=387462999

I have a few 33s and 45s most have the #4
