    I am new to this group and want to say hi and ask a question.
    I have just purchased my first lever action 336 RC. I am hoping that someone can tell me if the rear sight can be replaced by something better. The receiver has not been drilled so I would like to keep it that way so is there a replacement for the dove rear sight without have to have to have the receiver done?

    A Williams receiver sight should go on your rifle. There are two holes on the left side for this purpose.

    I've seen them, but don't remember where. Check some online places like Brownells, Cabala's & Midway.
