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"

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.

    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
