Better sights for single six 17hmr?



Log in to see fewer ads
Ordered a 6.5 inch blued SS in 17hmr. The gun is just for jack rabbits, prairie dogs, and ground squirrels. I been trying to search but can't really find an answer. What sight options are there for smaller targets at longer ranges? Are the williams sights finer or just high viz? Did see the wakeman article but seems like a lot of trouble.

If you have the hmr how do u like it and what is the accuracy like for u?

I find the Williams fiber optic sights too course for precision shooting. They are fast on target but just as wide (course) as the standard sights. Imho, a nice combo would be the shallow V rear sight (like the Hunter # 0662) and the brass bead front sight from the Talo American rifle # 8359. That brass bead front sight may be a little tough to find but will give you a precise (fine) sight picture. Best of luck to you.

Will that rear sight blade be the right height? Does the front fit without modification? Someone could make some money offering a set for precision shooting.

Also came across the one hole rear ghost ring, wondering how that might work with a small front bead. I liked the ghost ring on my 455 lux, vut its much closer to the eye.

The rear sight has plenty of adjustment. The rear blade is available in shallow V and deep v. I would start with the shallow v as you can always file it deeper if need be.
The front sight is made by Williams for Ruger. The one on my American .22wmr is .435" tall and the bottom curvature is the same as my Single Nine. The stock Single Nine sight is the same height as the Single Six sight @ .445". I have never thought of a rear peep sight on a handgun. It's an interesting idea. If you go this route, let us know how you like it.
