I have a bug buster scope on my charger mares leg, but want to go to peep sights. I've looked at nodak, lyman, williams, and tech. They all look really good, but I don't see how I can attach a front sight, or which one to choose. I like the Williams foolproof and the lyman equivalent. Does anyone know of a front sight that I could mount to the bbl to match either of them?

Another good manufacturer is Skinner Peep Sights LLC.

You may have to have a dovetail cut into your barrel for the front sight to mount. Skinner has those too.

I have not tried this on a charger but it has worked on other round tube barrels.
1) Get a black pipe nipple about the same inside diameter as the out side diameter of your barrel.
2) Slice a short cylinder out of the nipple. This piece should be just a short little piece of pipe, 1/2 " is plenty.
3) Slit one side of the cylinder legnth wise with a saw.
4) Drill and tap an 832 hole in the side of the ring opposite the slit.
5) Slide the ring on the end of the barrel with the slit down and the hole up. You can open the ID of the ring by twisting a large screwdriver in the slit . A gentle squeeze with a padded jawed vice will close up the ring.
6) Screw a 832 screw down tight in the hole.
7) Go to the range and use some kind of cutter to adjust the hight of the new sight

I like to run a nut or two down on the screw. I use white nylon screws. You can also use brass screws for "gold" beads or steel screws for steel sights. I file flats on the metals but leave the nylon threads on.

Contemplating very similar issues for my charger... I have some anschutz diopeters (fancy word for peep sights?) I'd like to use, taking advantage of the wonderful stock rail. I think drilling a mount is the way to go for what ever front sight you decide on. For myself it will be a "globe". One time expense with the least amount of hassle for the lifetime of the gun. Closest shootin spot to me is a 25 yard indoor range. Seemed like a charger would be perfect for taking there. Shooting it with a scope has been rad, I want some nice irons to mix it up. I'm modeling mine after these I found on RFC: https://farm8-staticflickr-com.cdn.a...1bbee5efdd.jpg

No-dak makes a front sight that is a slip fit on a 0.920" barrel.

I've got one on a rifle and I (and my boy) like it a lot.

It uses their railed peep sight.


edited to add;
The railed rear receiver sight co-witnesses with Bushnell's TRS-25 red dot sight.

The front sight is their NDS-23
