What type of rear sight?

Post by calkiduk »

I recently purchased a Model 8 from 1912 and the rear sight is a broken Marbles leaf sight. Does anyone know the correct model sight I need to purchase and where I can find one?

They come up for sale. This one is claimed to be original but is a flat top so I don't think it is. It's missing it's elevator but you could use a replacement.

Remington would put nearly any sight you wanted on a rifle back then. Your broken one was a No. 95.
