    I have never seen one like that Al. What is it ? It looks like it would be easy to install.

    I am not going to drill holes in mine. I am probably going to put a Malcolm 3x reproduction scope on the Marlin 1895 but that won't require any drilling.

    Read the attached link, has all the details! Found it on another forum, though it looked cool!

    That is a nice site & for only $145 . I would put one on.

    I like the sight but not the idea of drilling holes in a reasonably expensive rifle.

    To bad it's not designed for existing holes!

    Not for me.  Although I don't own that Winchester, but would love to.  Looks jerry-rigged to me.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    That is a copy of the original sight that Lyman made starting in 1895. I have pictures of it in my book of old vintage sights. Jerry-rigged is hardly the name for it; it's actually a very nice precision aperture sight.

    I don't doubt the veracity of the sight.  But it's added on, and looks added on.  Plus you apparently have to drill and tap for it, which is an abomination on a collectable rifle.  Reduces the value.
