    Globe front sight with integrated Anti cant level

    Building a new black powder cartridge Silhouette rifle
    The only missing part is a good front sight
    Before i go through the hassle of getting one imported or importing one myself
    Got a couple of shops getting me a price
    But ether way it will need importing ether by me or a shop

    Unless someone has a pre loved one lying around

    Would love a windage Adjustable one but not a deal breaker if itís not Iíll just slide it in the dovetail as normal
    Prefer.375 dovetail but again not crucial

    Must have an Integral bubble level ether external like the Pedersoli options or internal like parker hales

    Hope you get this sorted. Been trying to find something similar for my rifle.

    I know they are Aus based not NZ but these guys could be worth a go: https://oneoffprecision.com.au/

    Best of luck!

    Yeah I’ll get it sorted
    Im pretty sure a front sight like this now requires a import permit
    Waiting on an email from nz police to confirm
    Not really a big deal apart from time upto 20 days apparently
    Then shipping holdups with Covid you never know when it’s going to show up

    So will try my best to find one here in nz

    @ramob-6mmrem did you have any luck or make any progress on this ?

    As of yesterday I'm looking for the exact same thing to get a new old gun shooting better with a peep rear sight
    If you can't find one locally we could get a couple in from offshore

    Cheers

    And now it pains me to say I burgled a Lyman 17A off a rifle that was perfectly sighted in to put on the new old muzzleloader I want to do load and patch tests on this afternoon !

    Still need another because I now have my number one muzzleloader doesn't have a front sight

    Sorry @akaroa1 and @caberslash
    Have had other things on my mind the past few days and haven’t checked this thread
    No luck yet waiting on emails

    Akaroa I actually have a 17a or possibly a cheaper Pedersoli one here with no bubble level
    The one im replaceing As it doesn’t have a level which is truly needed if pushing the ranges
    If it will work for what you need let me know and will see we can make a deal

    Which one did you go for and where did you get it?

    Still get some American companies being funny about ITAR.
