Things I liked: All metal. It's very adjustable and was easy to install. It's much more accurate than the iron sights installed on my Benjamin 392. I'm getting groups half the size I was before.
Things I would have changed: I would have liked a longer height adjustment screw. I'd pay an extra dollar or whatever for a screw to allow longer shots at lower velocities.
What others should know: Lots of talk that it was easy to strip the screws. I used the right tools for the job and had no issues. It's a precision instrument so treat it like one.
Things I liked: I added this to a Sheridan Blue Streak that already had a drilled and tapped receiver. This is an excellent sight which I added to overcome the fact that I can no longer focus on the notched rear sight. Re the complaints of over-torqueing: just be careful (use a very small precision screwdriver) and you won't over torque. You might want to put a little lube (penetrating oil) on the threads if you think the threads in your receiver might be rough or corroded. Mine threaded in just fine and my rifle was bought in the early 80's. YMMV.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: Access to the front mounting screw is possible after loosening the elevation screw (the front screw in the silver ring) and slipping off the elevation assembly.
Things I liked: I mounted this sight on a Benjamin 392 .22 cal. and its a much better sight than what came from the factory. Mounting the sight and sighting it in was no problem, except stripping the vertical alignment screw..............
Things I would have changed: It really needs a longer bolt on the vertical adjustment.
What others should know: Be prepared to tap some new threads, the sight is all aluminum and if you tork on it much it will strip out pretty easily. As I said above, its a superior sight to the factory sight and with the help of a new bolt and a little lock-tight you'll be a happy shooter.
Considering purchasing this sight to replace the scope on my 397 from the early 1990s. How do I remove factory rear sight? Do I need to use a wood block or mallet to knock it off, out of the grooves? Thanks.
I have a Silver Streak made in 1968 or 1969 that I would like to put a peep sight on. Will this on work on my gun?
Will this Williams sight fit Gamo Whisper Fusion?
