View Full Version : Sourdough sight

Trying to locate a Marbles Sourdough front sight for my Marlin 39 Mountie Octagon. Marbles no longer makes them. Brownell's doesn't have the right height. Midway doesn't have any. Guess I need a high one for a peep sight. HELP !!!

All the Sourdough sights I ever saw were Redfields.
Which doesn't help much, but will let you look under something different.

Gary Fellers is the biggest dealer in obsolete sights I know of.

Marbles made some for Brownell's, however they don't have the height I need. Guess they were also called a "Partridge" sight. I set up my Marlin 39 I got for my birthday about 55 yrs ago with a Partridge & receiver sight & really like it. Would like to do the same with the Mountie. Thanks.

Never heard of one, what is it?

Probably the best way to find out would be to run a search on Sourdough Sight. Arguably the best hunting sight. Nasty-G
