    I bought a set for my model 70 (magazine fed version of the model 60) and my 11 year old son loves them. I changed the 70 to tech sights and a they currently reside on a 60. Easy install, easy to adjust and work well. Much better than the stock sight.

    I'm sorry! I wasn't very specific in my question! I thought you could read my mind. I was talking about the gun sight. I've been thinking about getting one for my Levermatic, and was looking at the 'Ace in the Hole' front and rear sites. For $68, it doesn't sound like a bad deal. Then I could take that scope off. I wish I knew someone with a peep sight so I could try it out and see if I can focus the front and rear sights at the same time. Getting old has some serious drawbacks!

    The title said fire sights - so I was talking about these:

    Williams fire sights for Marlin

    For a peep option, I have the Williams WGRS-54 that would fit on the dovetail on the Model 60 receiver, however you would probably need a taller front sight. I used this one on a Glenfield 25 that has the dovetail slot in the barrel for the front sight, just drifted out and replaced with a taller Marbles front sight. If you have a screwed in front sight, there are screwed on ramps that can take a dovetail insert and you can go as tall as you need.

    The ones I was looking at were on the Williams web site. Have you checked it out? They have some cool stuff!
