If you have safety - it will. I think, the front sight hight is the same.

I forget to say, that you can shoot wiht my rear sight WITHOUT the ghost ring as witn usual open sight - in low light condition or on close distance. For that purpose the hight of my sight is the same as rossi rear sight.

vtoran, your sight is very well made. The machining is so smooth and precise that when I tried to put it in and it got stuck, I had a friend who has more skills than I do to put it in place correctly before I broke something. And yet it is very tough.

Thanks!

Glad you like it. You are the first of American users who wrote about the experience with my sight.

Taking to the account current difficult situation, I can offer the last sight I have (titanium) for $99 shipped.

I do mean it; I am not saying it to make you feel good. I may not have expressed myself (I was in a hurry) but the best way to describe it is: there are other rear sights that sit on the bolt replacing the safety, but yours is in a completely different league. When I first tried to adjust the height I thought it was broken because I did not feel the kind of resistance I would expect in a, say, tang sight. That was because the machining is so precise there is no binding.

Now, I do not hunt but do wonder how effective it would be, as it is small enough it might not snag into things (a tang sight would be more delicate).
