Iron sights are a system of shaped alignment markers (usually metal) used as a sighting device to assist in the aiming of a device such as a firearm, crossbow, or telescope, and exclude the use of optics as in telescopic sights or reflector (reflex) sights.
Iron sights are typically composed of two component sights, formed by metal blades: a rear sight mounted perpendicular to the line of sight and a front sight that is a post, bead, or ring. Open sights use a notch of some sort as the rear sight, while aperture sights use some form of a circular hole. Civilian, hunting, and police firearms usually feature open sights, while many military battle rifles employ aperture sights.
The earliest and simplest iron sights are fixed and cannot be easily adjusted. Many iron sights are designed to be adjustable, so that the sights can be adjusted for elevation or windage. On many firearms it is the rear sight that is adjustable.
For precision applications such as hunting or sniping the iron sights are usually replaced by a telescopic sight. Iron sights may still be fitted alongside other sighting devices (or in the case of some models of optics, incorporated integrally) for back-up usage.
I just found a nice marlin 357 lever action. It has the factory Iron sites, who can suggest sites or ? for 65 year old eyes (I need glasses for reading). Thanks for all the wisdom, you guys are really helpful.
I went a different direction with sights so never used these. I did open the box and mount the front to see how it worked but never ran the sights per say. Please do your research to make sure these will fit your platform.
Parts removed from a Marlin 30AS chambered in 30/30. I've read that these should be compatible with a Marlin 336.
$20 gets everything, will ship for additional cost.
Factory dovetailed iron sights:
Nice model. Only posting to get another nice hunting shotgun. I usually grab the .35 Remington for rifle shootin, so this one just sits in the safe. Comes w a little ammo. $350 cash, or trade for a wingmaster or other nice gun. Located in south Salem. Willing to travel but not far. Thank you for...
For sale I have a pair of Daniel Defense fixed iron sights. Mounted up on a build and sat there for the last month. I love 'em but I think I'm going to try an LPVO and they kind of get in the way of that.
Willing to sell for $90 cash, or trade for the following:

So I’ve spents hundreds outfitting each rifles with real Troy Inc & Knights Armament and finally Magpul iron sights.
I decided to see how a replica set of Knights Armament licensed flip up Airsoft iron sights would hold up. I’m actually shocked..
$29.99 they are full aluminum with steel...
Finally got some iron sights mounted and took this out last Thursday (my birthday). It was an absolutely beautiful day with a bit of a chilly start, lots of sunshine and the trees in all their magnificent display of fall colors.
I had the entire MRC pistol range to myself for over the two hours...
