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"
