Rear sights for aging eyesight
« on: January 25, 2021, 09:00:02 PM »
For some folks wanting to improve their shooting I see from time to time some have made a rear aperture sight and usually these have no windage adjustment feature! Kermit Hoke makes tang sights that will fit upon the rear tang and all that need be done is give Kermit the radius of the rear tang on your rifle and he can cut the base to fit your rear tang. Photo here is not a Hoke sight but similar to what Kermit makes. A much shorter elevation blade can be made than what's shown here!

That is a beautiful match rifle. Looks like a Rigby.
