What Tang Sight For Ballard Rifle



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm looking for a Tang Sight for a Ballard and am unsure what to buy as most don't list an application. I'm wondering if the mount is the same for all rifles. Anyone know for sure?

EDE, I am a long time single shot rifle guy. Each rifle manufacturer takes a different tang sight, due to the hole spacing on the wrist of the rifle and the angle of the staff (tall part of the tang sight). I good place to price them is Lee Shaver.com, he makes his own sights, his economy sights are pretty good quality, in fact I have 3 of them. Also you can look at Buffalo Arms.com. Expect to pay around $250 minimum. If you need more help feel free to contact me. I have several Ballard's, they are a blast to shoot. Good day.

As has been said you will probably need to accurately measure for the mount . I like the Baldwin fronts as the spirit level is contained in the hood and a good assortment of inserts . On my Sharps rear I have a Kelley long range soul . Very high quality and the vernier is as good as it gets . It will be hard to pick one maker as they are all pretty much Top Shelf . Good luck WJR
