I recently purchased a marbles tang peep for a Winchester model 61. The sight locked down correctly when it lays down but will not lock in the upright position. Can anyone tell me what might be wrong with sight. Thanks
They aren’t supposed to lock–that’s why they were called Marbles “Flexible” tang sights. Unless you’re talking about one of the new ones, which may be different.
OOPS!! The bottom of the base is stamped “W 8”. The box actually says, “For Winchester, 1903 Automatic”. I made a mistake. Sorry!!! My 61’s have Lyman sights and I didn’t check them. My BAD. The sight base is not correct for the 61, but I believe function of how it lies down is the correct way it is suppose to function. If I’m wrong, which is possible, correct me. I am still teachable, it’s my memory that is lacking. RDB
