i need a reciever sight for a remington 14 1/2 pump rifle, does any one know if a remington model 14 reciever sight will also fit my remington 14 1/5 ? (i want the one that fits the exsisting holes at the rear of the action). thanks eastbank.

    First off, we need to establish which you are looking for, as the data provided is mixed. Are you looking for a tang sight or a reciever sight? They are different.

    I am sure Marbles, or Lyman makes something that will be very adaptable if note a direct fit.

    TSR, yes they are. as the rem. 14 and 14 1/2 do not have a tang to speak of,the peep sight is mounted on the rear of the reciever by two screws, the sight extends back over the wood a little bit. the rear sight is mounted up on the barrel ahead of the reciever. what i was asking was does the md.14 and md. 14 1/2 use the same sight(is the spacing for the mounting screws the same?). thanks for your reply, eastbank.

    I had one hoping it would fit the 25 Remington and sold it when it didn't.
    The Marbles R8 is for the Remington 14 & 141.
    I'd take a chance on any Lyman, Marbles or King sight for the Rem 14.
    A King sight I have for the Remington 12 & 25 is marked R12 so King sights are marked for the actual gun.
    The Lyman Sight I had I believe was also marked R8 but I'm not sure.

    That Lyman tang sight for the 12, 121 & 25 requires you to drill a hole in the stock for a wood screw. The one I had for the 14 had a shorter base and didn't. It was held only by the two screws.
