I bought a 30-30 Marlin for shooting wild hogs. It has a scope which I finally got around to removing. Whoever mounted the sight took the elevator out of the ramp sight and bent the rear plate flat. I have removed the scope, but now I see that there must be another part to support the rear sight, other than the elevator. This rear sight is completely split with nothing going across the gap for the elevator to support. Is there anybody on this site who is familiar with this open sight?

Is this the sight? Check out Ebay item number 281049089796 for $20.00.

Consider mounting a peep sight on the rifle. Williams makes a variety of receiver-mounted rear sights, and Marbles makes a tang-mounted sight for lever guns that's pretty slick.

Do the hogs wear jackets with acronyms on them?

Replacements for the missing/damaged parts cam probably be found on Ebay cheaper than ordering them at a gun shop.

For short range shooting mount a red dot type sight on it or mount a low power shotgun scope in the old scope rings?

X2 on the peep sight. A peep sight is much better than a notch, especially as we get older and our eyes struggle to focus on front and rear sights as well as the target. You can get a large aperture peep sight for those fast shots, and it works almost as well as a scope. Just look through it without thinking about it, and your eye will automatically center the front sight.

Since you have to fix the rear sight anyway, you might as well upgrade. For extra credit, get a fiber optic front sight for those shots in dim light.

Wiliams also makes fiberoptic sights, called "FIRESIGHTS." Probably a little expensive, but sure are nice for us older eyes.

Yep, thanks, John and others for replies. After I posted I did look at Numrich website where I bought the elevator. It showed a fold-down leaf that sits on the elevator.

I'm sorry, dog. I don't know what a acronym is, but this is Texas...we don't need jackets down here.

I'll look into that. I do have older eyes, for sure.

Thanks, DH. That's it excactly, and those are the two parts I have. There must be a fold-down leave that attaches to the top piece.

By the way, how did you get that top piece off the barrel?

Okay, you've helped me fix that. I have another project that is pretty stubborn. I have a Crosman pump-up air rifle that shoots the .177 pellet or BB. The front sight is made with a saddle that sits on the barrel, but this one broke off. So I used JB weld to reattach it, and it broke again. If I can find a replacement part, what is the best way to make a new piece stay put? My grandson needs to learn how to sight a rifle.

"top piece" slides into groove in barrel. May be very tightly fixed there. I've had to work very hard to get some of them off. Since it's an older item, it may be prcatically fused in, rust and metal to metal contact may practically weld it in place. If you're replacing the item, you may want to cut it crossways with a Dremmel and a thin cutting wheel.
