    Shawn.54, I saw this sight in one of the posts re. your 404 Jeffery threads. I suggested that you thread it now, so you could install an insert at a later time if you wanted to. The tang moves the rear sight even closer to the eye, that is why I was wondering if you ever considered it. Most guys would do just what you're doing. Tang sights are more a thing of the past and are normally used on less powerful rifles. On second thought maybe suggesting them was a "bum" idea.

    Tang sights were reportedly tried ( and discontinued) on heavy recoiling rifles, due to a propensity to take out the shooter's eye. This is why tang sights that lock into position are recommended for non-blackpowder centrefire loads and when using self defence loads in light rifles like the Model 94 trapper in .44 Magnum.

    That is a great looking sight Shaun. One reason to thread the aperture is that it will help to disrupt any possibility of shine strike. I really like the ones I have had and those I still have. A very quick and accurate sighting system and being bridge mounted on the heavier rifles it gives the longest sighting plain and negates any possibility of recoil danger that a bolt mounted or more particularly a tang mounted sight might promote.
