    Dovetail front sight base

    I'm looking for a globe type front sight base, that goes into a dovetail barrel.
    So far I've found one from Williams. But none others.
    Lyman has their 93 sight, but no bases.
    I'm sure they are made.

    Also Look at Montanna Vintage arms, Buffalo Arms company, Trac of the wolf, Dixie gun works, and brownells for bases with the dovetail to fit in a dovetail. For the high power type set up with the barrel clamp with male dove tail parallel to barrel and front sight. Champoins choice, Champions shooters supply, Sinclairs.

    Lyman makes Globe sights in a variety of heights that fit in a 3/8 dovetail
    Hick: Iron sights!

    Brownells has the Williams base.
    Champions Choice and Champions Shooters don't have.
    I'll check the other places.
    I have the Lyman dovetail globe sights.
    I have a few of the other dovetail match sights that are just sitting around doing nothing.

    Not completely sure what base /sight your looking for. Unertal win rem redfield all made bases with dovetail that used 2 screws to hold to barrel. These were used for scopes and front sights Like the international and Olympics. The Lyman has both the globes for the dovetail base and to fit into the front sight dove tails. Unertal made a front base with 2 steps one for 50 yd small bore and the lower step for 100yds small bore.
