Dovetail cut in BB barrel?

Log in to see fewer ads

I really love my BB to death, but also really love aperture sights.
Have any of you had a dovetail cut into your barrel to install one?
I now have two rifles with no front aperture sights,
and it's either cut a dovetail or use one of these types of adapters.

If I could find a clamp on dovetail that would work better,
but all the ones I have seen are huge blocks.
I bought this adapter for my 10/22, and it looks OK, but Im still not too sure if I like it.
I can get another one that slips over the BB Barrel,
but you still have to loc-tite it on there, and that seems chintzy to me.

What would you recommend for using a front Lyman globe sight on a BB?
