Included in the box: one dovetail filler (recommend red loctite to set it)
Ranger Point profiled dovetail fillers are specially machined to "flush mount" on round rifle barrels.
These already profiled dovetail fillers hand fit in minutes and save you the 1-2 hours of filing necessary to fit dovetail blanks.
- Machined out of steel and blued or stainless steel
- Flush mounts so as to remove the usual "unsightly bulge"
- Available in two sizes: .850" diameter and .900" diameter (fits most rifle barrels such as Marlin, Henry, Winchester, Savage, Mossberg, etc).
* Please note: these parts are extremely time consuming to make thus why they cost more than the "unsightly bulge" options on the market. Since they're a perfect flush fit, you're also saving all of the time you would have spent sanding, filing and fitting other options.
Test fit the dovetail filler in the barrel cut. In most cases, it will slide in easily, or with gentle tapping. Do not attempt to drift in the blank with a punch, as this will damage the thin side edges. If the filler does not fit, use a file or sandpaper to remove material from the fore/aft sharp edges (not bevels). If removing a few thousands of an inch doesn't get a fit, the bottom of the filler may need to be lapped on fine sandpaper to loosen the overall fit. Cold blue may be used for touching up bare metal. Once a slip fit is achieved, degrease the filler and the dovetail cut, then apply Red Loctite (or similar) generously to help fill voids and prevent rust. Wipe away excess and let set. Apply gun oil after adhesive sets. When the factory rear sight is removed it leaves an unsightly dovetail cut in the barrel. Our profiled blanks fill this dovetail to closely match the diameter of the barrel, rather than having an equally unsightly raised hunk of metal.

A perfect fit, no adjustments needed at all. Checked the fit, degreased the part and dovetail, painted it with a little red Loctite and done. Looks far better than the old style fillers with the large flat on top of them. Another great offering from Ranger Point.
When I bought my Marlin 336 XLR 30/30 I didn’t like the ugly carbon steel dovetail on my beautiful stainless steel barrel so I took to the internet to find a quality dovetail SS dovetail blank. I found the one by Ranger Point. It was wonderful. It literally just slid right in the groove. It didn’t need any filing, sanding, and I didn’t need to do any tapping at all. I just put some red locktite on it, slid it in place using only my finger and I was done.
Fits perfectly, little loose to allow easy fit. I used blue loc-tite, so far so good. Reason for a 4 star review is the finish isn't right for my Henry H010AW. Appears to be made of 304 stainless steel.
Installed a blues flush fit dovetail filler on a Mossberg 464 (the smallest size). Fit great, looks great. Get one for all your rifles.
Excellent product. I'm scoping one of my Marlins and wanted to fill the gap left from removing the rear sight. Fit and finish are great!
This product fit the rear dovetail of my Marlin 1894CL a little loose ..but that is a good thing as I'm sure I would have damaged it trying to tap it in place. The profile matches my barrel perfectly, and the color matched perfectly.. some red loc-tite and let it dry done..
I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because there were some light sanding marks that we're blued over but nothing major ..I would order this product again with out hesitation, and recommend to friends.
Excellent! easy to fit and looks better than any blank ever did. Thanks for a great product.
