The new self-made rear sight...and one more...and the last

Postby vtoran » 25 May 2014 05:20

Yesterday I tested the new self-made rear sight / safety replacement.
The sight allows to make the fast distance correction adjustment.
Tested on Rossi 92 .454 Casull, 20" barrel, with Magtech FMJ (see photo) and self-casted bullets (wheel weights, Lee 452-255-RF, 18 gr of Sunar-410 powder, speed is around 510 m/s, distance 25 m).

What do You mean - solid? It's tight enough, depends on the plug diameter.

Wow, that is a great looking peep sight! Does the serrated wheel raise and lower the sight? If so, does it have positive clicks, stops, or something that sets it from be moved accidentally?

What was the origin of the part? Did you take something from another use to make this?

Yes, the serrated wheel raise and lower the sight. I thought about making some clicking device, but that will complicate the sight greatly. And as the shooting of about 50 .454 Casull cartridges showed, the adjustment is not changed on the range. You have to use Your finger to change it :D .

Everything from blueprint was made myself, I used help of the turner.

If somebody is interesting in it, I can produce some more.

I suspect you would have some takers on this but you might want to check if you could export them as I know we cannot export receiver sights from the US.

If somebody wants the sight, I think it can be made for $65 (with postage).
Do not hesitate to contact me.
