MADE IN THE USA
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 - 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:
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 the blank in 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! easy to fit and looks better than any blank ever did. Thanks for a great product.
