In simple terms NO! Hole pattern is different. Also rear sits higher above slide; bigger gap.

Marvel rail will go on a Nelson with one new hole in the rail and a little filing at the breech end.  Very simple.  I have two done that way

I bought a Nelson Iron Sight rail to try on my Marvel and it did not fit.  I guess it might fit with new mounting holes but I don't want to drill holes in either one.  Its a shame because I really liked the sights on the Nelson rail but I will keep the Marvel Ribs I have.

Strange, I'm kind of on the opposite side of that.  I think I'd prefer a Nelson conversion, but like the iron sights on the Marvels better.

I must be doing something wrong.....I'm happy with my Marvel and the sights it came with.

Difference to me is the rails weight. Aluminum vs steel weight.

What I’m thinking is that I like the Marvel rear sight more than the Nelson rear sight and so I was thinking of fitting a Marvel steel iron sight rib on to my Nelson. I was just curious of the possibility. Thank you.
