Building a FN Mauser in .458 Win Mag
Hey guys I am in the process of having FN action Mauser 98 converted to .458 Win Mag. I am just curious as to what you guys think about this. I am not trying to make a BUBAIZED mauser by any means. The gun smith I am using does alot of mausers, and has done one other for me that turned out great. I am going to be using this for Cape Buffalo, and probably Grizzlies in the next couple of years. I am torn though. What sight do I need? I have a NEGC front sight WIth a fiber optic bead, already on it. I can go for the classic Express Sighs but I really feel like a Peep sight will be just as fast and more accurate at range. I know that I don't want to have an optic on this rifle becasue I like to do my BUff hunting with Iron sights. Well at least when I am up close and porsonal with them. But i also know that almost no modern dangerous game rifles have peep sights on them, unless they are of a rigby style. Just looking for what you guys think. Hopefully you have more expereince with dangerous game hunting than I do. Ive only been on one buffalo hunt.
