    Anyone know who might make a dovetail front sight for a marlin 1895 lever gun, I ordered a set of xs ghost rings but the front wont fit due to the dovetail. HELP!!!

    Mine doesn't have any bolt holes it has a dovetail cutout on the barrel for a press in sight.

    Yours is going to get a little more complicated. You have to have a much higher front sight. You should contact XS sights and ask how tall a front sight you need. You will likely need a ramp and new sight.
