    Tang vs Receiver Peep

    I'm thinking this year, I will change the sights on my 9422m to either a rear peep, probably skinner or a tang mounted one - like marbles.
    I know from experience, I like the receiver mounted peep sights.
    I have never used a tang sight before, but they look like they bleed coolness, especially in a lever action.
    Are they just as quick and easy to use as their receiver mounted cousins?

    IMHO, Tang mounts are easier/faster to adjust and more accurate because of the increased sight radius. And yes, way cooler on a period style gun, serious "Quigley" factor.

    Tang sights look cooler, and might get you an extra 3"(?) of sight radius, but they are a pokey-up bit right where your thumb goes. On something like Edenchef's oh-so-pretty Quigley single shot maybe it isn't such a big deal?
    I know I've handled a couple of '94s with tang sights, and they weren't cumbersome or really even awkward, but it was 'different'. Maybe with some time with it, I'd get used to it, but I haven't had accasion to.
    They also look right at home on a Savage 99.

    That's pretty much why I ask. I can't handle one, so I don't know if that's going to be annoying or not.

    I don't find that it gets in the way of my thumb at all, with my grip it sits right in front of it.

    PS. Bought her a 26 inch brass Malcom scope for Christmas....my damn eyes are just not improving with age. Will post pictures when it arrives.

    Ooooohhh...
    I'm sure your eyes are good enough to put up a pic though (hint hint)

    Uh, back to sights.
    I don't think that they're that much of a hindrance, or they wouldn't have been so popular for so long.
    I'm sure a guy'd get used to it quick enough. Go for a long stroll down a couple of trails and you'd quickly figure out what worked or didn't. The unfortunate part is they're so dang expensive, just to 'try'.

    Another question would be, who can/best order in Marbles products?

    I think that the "marble" style tang sight would work best for field work. It even allows you to keep the regular open sight in place, for quick shots.

    Here's a picture from the internet of a couple 9422s, I got the saddle ring ordered for mine. Tang sight will be in the new year.

    It's the kind of parts that can be shipped to canada by those with export permits. Brownells sent me mine but i got others cheaper at buffalo arms as i recall.

    I just lay my thumb alongside the site instead of putting my thumb all the way over the stock - guys have been shooting with that site for years, it's not a problem. I like the marbles ones because they've got windage and elevation.
