We do almost all our deer rifle hunting with Marlins and have been for many years.
1895 45-70, Guide Guns, Outfitters in 444, 30-30s etc.
IMHO there is nothing wrong with the factory buckhorn, esp. hunting deer. When I was younger I could cloverleaf 3-4 shots,all touching each other @ 100 yards with factory sites. I never took the hood off but if you do, don't toss it.
We have skinner peeps and scopes on most of them now but I still have a waffle top that I hunt with open, factory sights.
Love the JMs
