    idea - Help

    I have a .308 rifle screw cut and hope to go for boar in the future, I think my 'scope is too big for driven boar (8x56) so I have had the idea of removing the scope and moderator (probably not permitted anyway) and mounting a front sight on the screw cover - anyone ever seen this done and would it be possible and if so anyone got any ideas who to approach?

    I reckon a good reliable gunsmith near you, or even a good machinist could sort you a solution, a good fitting screw protector, with an iron sight element silver soldered in place, & a small grub screw to secure in place?

    Someone put some photos up of a Blaser with a sight fitted to the screw cover.

    Why not switch to a low magnification scope? I put a 2.5X on my 45-70 bolt gun for hunting in heavy timber. Faster than iron sights, and far more precise.~Muir

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
