Things I liked: My rifle is an older HW30 that had the fixed front sight post globe sight. The option of different front sight posts appealed to me.

Things I would have changed: Should be easier to install.

What others should know: I could not install the front sight on the barrel using a "push fit." Using excess force would have damaged it. I noticed there is a slot machined longitudinally in the bottom that does does not carry all the way through the sight. I had to file the end of the sight to carry the slot all the way through-this allowed me to install the unit on the barrel. I'm not sure if this is a manufacturing defect, but I made it work. I had to raise the rear sight quite a bit to get back on zero at the ranges I shoot at.

Things I liked: The inserts are great

Things I would have changed: The material of the front sight itself is too soft. I tried to insert it on the grooves in the muzzle in different ways and the filings got deformed. I will most likely return the product.

What others should know: Perhaps there is a specific way of inserting the sight that I do not know about. A shame really, since my HW90 is a delight to shoot with open sights.

    Things I liked: it seems to be aluminum with only the dial part that opens being steel

    Things I would have changed: specify which hw this fits on!!!

    What others should know: I couldn't get this onto my HW95, return and or exchange with PA were NOT a pleasure, VERY FRUSTRATING I don't know if I got a bad one or not, or if it just doesn't fit, I would be be very hesitant to order this for a HW95...
