    Dovetail base????

    I'm trying to put a peep sight on my Marlin Camp 9.
    Don't want anything sticking up to high. No dot sight.
    I found a 1903A3 rear sight that looks like it would be perfect.
    Problem is it has a female dovetail on it.
    Does anyone know of a male dovetail screw on base?????

    Numrich Arms sells Dovetail Blank Stock in a couple different widths. 6-1/4" Long. Item # 221170 and 221090. Maybe others but a place to start for you.
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change? (Sgt. Oddball, KELLY'S HEROES)

    Nope, not gonna do what he wants. I think he needs something with a dovetail (3/8"?) on the bottom and a matching reverse on the top?

    Somers, Montana, a quaint little drinking village,with a severe hunting and fishing problem.
    Contact Skinner Sights, Andy may have what you need.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    Correct. I'm looking for a dovetail that goes side to side, that is male (sticking up).
    I've never seen one, but maybe...........
    I did check with Skinner sights.
    Good looking sights. But to tall for me.
    Anyone know what happened to Mojo sights????
    The site is not working for me.
    They used to have a bunch of peep sights.
    Another company (don't know the name) has a M1 Garand looking rear sight for the Ruger 10/22, that might work. It might still be to high.
    I'm wanting to keep it as low as possible, so the front sight is also low.
