Interesting, i got a 70 year old marlin that had the same issue.  Seller even told me it shot high.  I bottomed out the dovetail and it was still way high.  Ordered a taller fiber optic front from skinner sights and fixed the problem.

I have an ace in the hole peep and am at the front end of the ramp and shooting low at 100.  I cannot find a shorter front sight for the life me. Any advice? Shooting a CVA Optima v2. Thanks in advance.  The title says Taller, I meant Shorter.

The real issue is that the rear sight is too far forward, it should be right near the back of the barrel right near the breech plug. It is built this way so you can put a rail on the gun for a scope and not have the stock rear sight interfere. The solution to your problem is to get an Eabco peeprib. Once your rear sight is further back then the stock front sight will work just fine. Plus, if you ever want to throw a scope on then you can (hunt in a firearms restricted area or in a state that allow scopes on a muzzy).

On mine I removed the sight that came with the peeprib and put a Williams ghost ring on it.
Thanks for the reply. I have my ace in the hole rail mounted all the way back and my peep is right in front of the plug and I’m still at the end of the ramp. Might need to get the file out.

I see that you're in Bothell. We could meetup at Kenmore rifle range once it's open again and you can try out my rifle.

Well I got my shims printed. 2mm, 3mm, 4mm. Need to get some longer screws, but I imagine it should work. When I get an opportunity to shoot I’ll let you know how it works.

I just went through the same thing with the same gun.  I have the Eabco rear peep and used the Marble Uni-ramp #72408 with .875 barrel diameter and .405 sight height.  A super easy and cheap fix.  The rifle shoots spot on with plenty of elevation adjustment up and down.

Well I just ordered the marble uni-ramp, I sure hope this site is tall enough, getting tired of buying sites.

Take the OEM screw to Fastenal and they’ll fix you up.
