Does anyone have experience of using a marlin 30-30 with the above sights? I recently bought a Marlin and have put around 40 rounds through it at 50 and 100 yards at the range, the 3 pics show 2 of the groups at 50 yards (around 3") and 1 of them at 100 (around probably 5" on the darker cardboard) and to be honest with the open Irons this seems to be about the best I can do with it, obviously this is only with 2 types of factory ammo - 170gr winchester and 150gr remmington - but I dont know if i'm expecting too much of it and I was wondering if the williams will make it easier to shoot? all the shots would most liokely be a dead whitetail or pig at under 100 but I want to make sure I do everything i can to get the group size down.
I have bought the sight and It comes with the standard 3/8 dia. .085 opening short shank steel aperture plus 2 twilight brass ringed long shank steel aperture's. The first aperture opening is .150. the second aperture is .050. All are 3/8 disc.
Having never used a williams sight I dont really know what to expect!
I loath to put a scope on the marlin but if the groups dont come down its all I can do to allow me to use it on live targets.
Any input welcome.
Edit - all pics are sideways and should be 90 clockwise!
