Yes there are different inserts for these sights. It will depend on which one you have, as to which inserts to buy. Can you take a pic and e-mail it to me so we can determine which inserts you need?

The word "funnel" suggests that it might be a Redfield, either Olympic or International. The two look similar, but differ in length and size of the inserts. Pictures of the sight and any writing on them would help us clear things up. Inserts are available for both, but you need to know what size you need.

Diameter Sight Compatibility

.470 (12mm) Lyman 17A & Browning BPCR
.550 (14mm) Redfield/Ally
.587 (14.9mm) Parker Hale
.675 (17.1mm) Redfield 65/66, Ally Globe & Large Lyman/ Anschutz
.700 (17.8mm) Redfield Olympic
.769 (19.5mm) Redfield International/ Mid Tompkins

I believe the Redfield 60 series sights are a 5/8 or .625 diameter rather than a .675

Outside Diameters of Globe Sight Inserts:

Lyman 17A also fits Browning BPCR. .470" (12mm) dia.
Redfield 60 series/Alley - .550" (14mm) dia.
Parker-Hale - .587" (14.9mm) dia.
Large Lyman (20, 93)/Anschutz - .675" (17.1mm) dia.
Redfield Olympic - .700" (17.8mm) dia.
Redfield International/Mid Tompkins - .769" (19.5mm) dia.

Some of your info is off and contradictory. What I've gleaned:

Lyman 17A also fits Browning BPCR. .470" (12mm) dia.
Redfield/Alley - .550" (14mm) dia. Fits Redfield 65/66 and Alley globe sights.
Parker-Hale - .587" (14.9mm) dia.
Large Lyman/Anschutz - .675" (17.1mm) dia.
Redfield Olympic - .700" (17.8mm) dia.
Redfield International/Mid Tompkins - .769" (19.5mm) dia.

Lyman 17A and Lyman 77 each take the same inserts as one another.
