Rear sights for model 140k



Log in to see fewer ads
I recently acquired a nice model 140k that had been scoped with the rear sights removed. The receiver is drilled and tapped for a peep sight. The barrel mounted rear sight has been removed and the holes filled with plug screws. This rifle has a hooded front sight that appears to be the front sight that came with a 140b judging from pictures. Removing the hood allows you to choose between a single post or an aperture sight that flips up from back to front. The previous owner said he had a rear peep sight on it at one time, Can anyone tell me the proper rear peep sight for this rifle? If no original can be found, is there a Lyman or Williams sight that would work on this gun?..............Thanks in advance!

Welcome. Rear sight should be a S-137. Receiver sight S-130. As you mentioned the front sight is from the B model. THe K just had a post and bead. Someone must have put upgraded the sights. Heres more info.

Sometimes the S-130 sight shows up on ebay. Also Havlinsales has a replacement sight listed as well
