I took a lightweight 94 30 WCF to range yesterday. Trying to adjust windage on this sight I believe there might be an alternate method to adjust windage besides tapping left or right.

Any info on model of sight and proper adjustment will be appreciated.DSC4073.JPGImage EnlargerDSC4074.JPGImage EnlargerDSC4075.JPGImage Enlarger

Cool sight! Looks like the part with the big white insert folds down to allow use of the finer brass bead. I’m thinking it doesn’t provide additional options for windage adjustments, though.

Marble’s called it their Duplex sight:  “You can draw bead in dim dawn, hazy brush, jack-light’s glare, etc.”  Seems like good idea, but no windage.  Pretty scarce sight.

Clarence nailed it… it is a Marbles Duplex sight.  I have the same front sight on my 405 WCF high-wall rifle, and it has no windage adjustment.  I fixed that problem by installing a Lyman No. 103 Tang sight.

Hi      Could  somebody  tell me please, why this sight cant be moved in its dovetail for horizontal adjustment ?   I cant see any lock screw.   If front sight is 

        central why not move the rear sight ?        Obviously  the Marbles sight was slid in to the fixed barrel ramp, so it cant be impossible to shift.

        Great sight anyway.                   Thanks,     Eric.

Yes, I can tell you: because the slot in the ramp is undersize or the base of the sight is oversize, or both!  I just got through having to use a 2-lb hammer to seat a factory sight in a Model 52 brl.–ridiculous!  Which you can’t do on your sight or you’d damage the ramp itself.  This will NEVER happen to me again while I own a 3-corner needle file.

Due to this bad experience, I just bought one of these, though I haven’t tried to use it yet:

However, for a ramp mounted sight, there’s a better tool, the Williams sight pusher:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/284065334656?hash=item42239d0580:g:vpUAAOSw2KVf4Puz

Yes I did push front sight with my Williams sight pusher. Using tang peep so no rear sight windage adjustment.
