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.

It slipped in with no effort on my Marlin 336. I used black max adhesive instead of the red loctite suggested in the instructions. The finish is great and the contour matches the barrel contour perfectly.
It does the job. I felt that for paying $34 for a piece of steel smaller than a penny that it should have fit tighter and had a more seem less fit. It does fill the opening made by the sight being removed but I do not think the fit and finish was worth $34. Maybe $5 would be a more appropriate price.
Unbelievable fit and quality, worth the price!!! I will be ordering the gold trigger and new lever next!
The .90 was a hair small for my SSR It did stick however and looks good.
I love it. fits perfect.
fit perfect, looks great, my rifle looks great, thanks
Very nice, easy enhancement to my 1895 GS. It very much makes the build look complete. Easy to install and near perfect color match. Thanks!
This thing is a time saver as well as a perfect fit . It makes the dovetail almost un-noticeable.
Like all the other reviews it ( the .850) fit perfectly on my Ruger 10/22.
