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"

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
