Re: rear site ?

You need a V type file,and only file a small V at a time,there are also some files that look like a knife edge too.I wouldnot make the V any bigger then this V

Re: rear site ?

Be careful if you use the Dremel Tool. It can zing out of control before you know it!! Ask me how I know??? I`ve used a Hacksaw Blade with good results. A trick I picked up is to take a Coffee Can plastic lid and cut a slit in it. Make it so it will fit over the sight but will still protect the Barrel ,just in case of a slip up......

Re: rear site ?

Match your rear site to your front.If your front is a block site,you can use a fine hacksaw blade.If the front is a "Dot",use a small V file.Either way protect that barrel by wrapping or covering close to the site.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: rear site ?

i hate v notches. a square notch is harder to guage properly for witness, but imo much easier to sight with.
