Do you have a photo of the peep on the top lever spindle. I need to mount a peep on a German .250-3000 double and thought that might be the ideal way to handle the problem.

Thanks.

Is this what you are after:



I personally think every double rifle, Drilling...etc. should have one of these.

I have no idea who would make it! Each top lever screw end would be custom per the gun.

The actual sight blade with aperature could be common and looks pretty easy for a competent machinist. Windage is via a couple cone type set screws that oppose each other. The hole...well I figure a .20" almost ghost ring size. A spring loaded ball detent to hold it flipped up or down. Elevation would need to be a function of the front sight.

If you find out who can do it at a reasonable cost I would love to know!

Add me to the list, I'd surely like one of those for my drilling. I didn't realize that the purpose was to increase depth of field, a fine idea!

I'd say if we had enough orders for them, perhaps 20 or so we might talk one of the metal working experts to make a run. But it looks as though each one would have to be indexed to face forward when the toplever is at rest.


My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

I'm thinking of going this route also. (Old eyes). If I do I think I'd have the original toplever screw removed and a complete new one made with the peep attached. Not that much extra work and the gun could be put back to original configuration for future owners or if I didn't like it. Next time I see my machinist/gunsmith friend I'll ask him about it.

This isn't one of those things that can be handled through a 'production run'
Parts of it might, but as an 'en-suite' build it's just not possible.

The indexing of the aperture/feature is one issue, a couple others would be the diameter of the 'screw head' and the thread/pitch/diameter/depth of the 'screw shank'.

Get to your local gunbuilder or machinist.
The design premise of the part shown above is simple and any machinist qualified for the job will be able to see what's going on and what's needed to make the project happen.

If one of you technically competent lads would follow through on this and actually ask someone who can make it what it would take and what it would cost, I would join the line to have one made for my .303 double.

One drawback to the top lever sight is as the gun wears in the sight moves across the top tang just like the lever.The lever needs to return to the same spot each time its released to have the same sight picture.
