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.

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
