Model 12

Post by Trixie »

I have a model 12 from childhood. It has RW serial # 119481 on the bottom of the receiver. It has an octagon barrel with a Marble R7 tang peep sight. The aperture is missing. Can someone tell me when this gun was manufactured and what size aperture I need to buy and where I might find one? Thanks Trixie

There were 3 different apertures for this sight. You can find more information on them here --> http://www.marblearms.com/standard-pee ... sight.html There is a page with links to the distributors where you can order them as well.

If you want an original one made the same year as your rifle, you would need to keep an eye out on the auction sights.
