crosshair front sight for Kodiak Magnum?

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone-

I have a CVA Kodiak magnum .50 caliber. I bought a Williams peep sight for the rear but I would like to find a crosshair type sight for the front. Lyman makes one very similar to what I am looking for but I would need to have a gunsmith either cut a dovetail into the barrel or mount a new ramp on the front. They said a gunsmith would know how to calcaulate how high of a ramp to put on. Sounds like it is going to be expensive. Anyone have any other ideas or know of anyone that could do this?

drilling and tapping isn't all that expensive. secondly, where did you get the peep style rear at? I've looked everywhere, other than online to no avail. the ramp can be removed just by backing out that screw...right. thats how mine is. is your front sight fixed, or can it slide left and right.

Yes it is fixed. I ordered the peep sight directly from Williams sight company. (I edited my original post- I put Weaver instead of Williams) They make one for the round and octagon barrels for quite a few different makes and models of muzzleloaders.

I'm guessing you just did a search for Williams sight company? As far as peep sights go, Williams makes darn good ones. Like vister, I'd like to get my hands on one or two.

I want to say I paid right around $40 for the peep sight. Williams model # WGRS-CVA round. Then I also bought a target aperture that I think might be too small for hunting. I'm hoping to get out this weekend and sight the gun in with the new sight. And yes, just search Williams gun sight company and they are under "Receiver Sights WGRS Series"

    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
