Changing things up...
« on: November 08, 2018, 11:42:01 AM »
Some of you know that I really like the Williams Fiber Optic front sights on my Western rifles...



But... when shooting paper targets, clay pigeons, and even hunting I have found that the red fiber optic does not seem to offer the contrast on the target I would really like to see.

I am sure there are a ton of places that you can purchase these Fiber Optic Rods, but I stumbled on this site when searching.

http://www.10-8performance.com/fiber-optic-rod-060/

I ordered some of the Green rods to replace the red rods that I had.  I was really surprised with the contrast difference the green rods provide versus the red rods.  It certainly could be different for you! But, I have made a couple of range trips using the green rod and it really helps me.



Keep shooting muzzleloaders - They are a blast!!

What is your position and experience with a front globe style sight?  Lyman etc. with the different inserts?

Not a lot... I used them in High School when shooting rifle team... but any since then.  I hunt in such different weather extremes I would worry about unwanted materials getting in where they do not belong...  I think there are few on this site that use them - but more for long range shooting.

I have been replacing mine with the green rods for several years now.

At very first/last light, I can see green MUCH better.

I bought a couple different sizes from Brownell's, to fit different rifles

I agree. Green is way better than red for the front sight.
