    Sears Ranger 103-2 22 Long Rifle

    Hello all,

    I have had this rifle for a very long time, my father handed it over to me about 30 years ago. I understand that this is the store brand of the Marlin Model 80. Is there any difference in the parts?

    Reason I ask is I want to buy a peep sight like this one: http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=2...ECEIVER-SIGHTS

    The stock sights work and the gun is accurate but my eyes have a hard time getting the rear buck horn style sight aligned.

    Thanks for any help,

    I had one of those for a while, It was old enough that it had conventional six groove rifling instead of microgroove.

    Does yours have the scope mounting grooves, or are there holes already drilled and tapped for mounting a receiver sight?

    As I recall, there were some differences, but I can't remember what they were. The receiver profile should be the same, so depending on whoch sight you get, you might need to drill and tap it for the mounting screws.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    sounds like you should be able to make the parts fits.

    No mine is not tapped or drilled at all. just the buck horn rear sight and the front post sight. Mine is the micro groove barrel. In my box o stuff I found a Redfield peep sight that will fit. Going to bring it to my gunsmith to have it drilled and tapped.

    Thanks all for the info.

    There are original peep sights for Marlin 80 on Ebay fairly regularly.

    does this look like what you are looking for.

    base was on the rifle when I got it
    Numrich had the knob, elevator scale and windage base and aperture.
    the adjustment arm was made from scrap in the shop and about and hour with vise and mill and small piece of drill rod.
