    Reluctant to post this one but......

    I was talk into doing this against my better judgement. I am not going to mention any names but his initials are Leadeye.

    I am still not sure how to feel about this type of work but overall, I am happy with the results, I am certainly am not soliciting work like this

    Gun had no dovetail in it which was no problem to cut. The challenge (at least for me) was to make the sight for the dove tail.

    After pics, final height size adjustments can be made after shooting









    In process: Piece of brass




    Prepping brass to cut dovetail insert


    Cut a .300 x 60 degree sight insert


    Then using aluminum Jaws on my vice I cut a dovetail a little smaller then the new sight for a fixture



    Ready to cut the blade





    Bladed







    Some hand contouring.



    Dovetail the gun. it has a taper barrel so the nylon inserts worked for holding



    Cut the sight base to width



    Gun had an octagon barrel so I used a 45 degree bit to shape the ends of the sight. this was hard to gauge when to stop. A bit of trial and error here.

    Nice work making the sight holding fixture for machining. Sometimes the setup is as involved as the finished work. Thanks again for sharing.
    Lord, if you'll pick them up, I'll put 'em down
