Included in the box: one dovetail filler (recommend red loctite to set it)
Ranger Point profiled dovetail fillers are specially machined to "flush mount" on Marlin Firearm round rifle barrels. These already profiled dovetail fillers install in minutes and save you the 1-2 hours of filing necessary to fit dovetail blanks.
- Machined out of steel and blued or stainless coated - Install in minutes and save the 1-2 hours of filing necessary to fit blanks
- Flush mount so as to remove the usual "unsightly bulge"
- Available in two sizes: .850" diameter and .900" diameter
Test fit the dovetail filler in the barrel cut. In most cases, it will slide in easily, or with gentle tapping. Do not attempt to drift in the blank with a punch, as this will damage the thin side edges. If the filler does not fit, use a file or sandpaper to remove material from the fore/aft sharp edges (not bevels). If removing a few thousands of an inch doesn't get a fit, the bottom of the filler may need to be lapped on fine sandpaper to loosen the overall fit. Cold blue may be used for touching up bare metal. Once a slip fit is achieved, degrease the filler and the dovetail cut, then apply Red Loctite (or similar) generously to help fill voids and prevent rust. Wipe away excess and let set. Apply gun oil after adhesive sets. When the factory rear sight is removed it leaves an unsightly dovetail cut in the barrel. Our profiled blanks fill this dovetail to closely match the diameter of the barrel, rather than having an equally unsightly raised hunk of metal.
Excellent product. I'm scoping one of my Marlins and wanted to fill the gap left from removing the rear sight. Fit and finish are great!
This product fit the rear dovetail of my Marlin 1894CL a little loose ..but that is a good thing as I'm sure I would have damaged it trying to tap it in place. The profile matches my barrel perfectly, and the color matched perfectly.. some red loc-tite and let it dry done.. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because there were some light sanding marks that we're blued over but nothing major ..I would order this product again with out hesitation, and recommend to friends.
Excellent! easy to fit and looks better than any blank ever did. Thanks for a great product.
