    I found an old Marlin Firearms model 50 .22 in my late Grandfathers garage. As this is the first rifle I've had, I not sure about something. It has no sights in place except for the pip on the barrel. Numrich sold me the semi-buckhorn w/ elevator that should be mounted. No instructions, of course. Anyway, my question is... which way does the elevator go in. Tried it both ways and it doesn't seem to be very secure. Any help would be appreciated. Nearest gunsmith is about 120 miles.

    First off, welcome to the forum. When you have an oppurtunity, stop by the "Introductions" section.

    Normally, the "elevator" will be set that as the "elevator" is moved towards the muzzle, the sight will raise. Numrich may have a schematic. Check out their website.

    Agree. Dovetail of the rear sight to the front, sight notch to the rear, insert elevator so that shoving forward raises the sight notch. Numrich has SOMEWHAT of a schematic- not much.

    Thank you for the response. Of course, that would make sense. I agree with your sentiments on the Colt.

    If loose, and by that I mean won't stay in place, a little blue loctite will work wonders.

    I actually prefer the Numrich - Marlin 25MN target rear sight, although not cannon, it has a setscrew that holds it in place, and you adjust via other screws when needed.
