Lightning Rifle Rear Sight Dovetail
Is there a difference on the sight dovetails on the Lightning Medium Frame Rifle? I put the front sight on, and it was a perfect fit for the 3/8" bladed sight. I tried to install a 3/8" buckhorn sight on the rear and the 3/8" sight was too large for the dovetail. I thought about filing down the sight, but it's an old sight and I don't want to ruin it. It the rear dovetail actually 5/16"?
To address my own question, I decided to fit the 3/8" sight down to fit existing dove tail on the barrel. I figured the sight wasn't as important as the barrel. It took alot of filing, but I got it to fit properly. The rear dovetail is definitely smaller than 3/8".
