just gotta figure out the base and windage.
also going to try to make a peep sight for one of my cva hawkens. thinking about making a globe front sight. think that one is going to be easier then then two peep sights.

think so but been a while. maybe be able to came up with something with the sight that is on my 54cal.

have to learn to braze steel to do most the work, that is going to be fun with out the right gas set up.

as for your cannon. find a nut the size you want lol

changing the idea on the aperture for the peep sight, found just an m16/a2 aperture. should save a few parts from being bought and an hour or two of work. ordered two for the price and two projects it was an oh well moment.

REAR FLIP UP REAR SIGHT

figured out the mount, found a corner brackets that I have not seen before. cut part of the brackets, have to still do some grinding and bending to do as well as adding another small bracket for extra support.

Why not drill holes in the tang and mount it in the center?

well gotta remember k.i.s.s. sometimes.

have not drill the tang yet, may just get an nut and rubber washer and do it that way.
just took that back tang screw out and mounted to see how it would look.
