If a reproduction will satisfy you. You might check out gunparts. They have most of the parts to build a Mid-range rear & a windguage front sight.

The Remington sights Numrich is selling are a nice copy of the originals, except they finished the vernier in a flat finish. I have that sight on my Creedmoor and I keep thinking I'm going to take it back apart and polish out the staff and base to blue them.
But I think that the front sight might be a .375" base? Don't think Remington went with the old dovetail size when they built their new Creedmoor rifles in the late 1990's?

Spud, What an amazing Match Grade B Hepburn. Gotta be very proud to own that one.

And Kurt, Another amazing Grade A in a not so common caliber.   Dale.

SSrifles, thanks for your post, that's very interesting news and I'm sure many will welcome the return of quality, traditional style sights. Good luck with your endeavor. PM sent.

I got a reply from Numrich stating the Remington windage globe they sell are a .447" dovetail base. So slightly narrow for original rifles. Might work if one can put a thin shim under the base when installing it.

They're out of complete sights, but do have almost all the parts to assemble a sight. But someone bought all the apertures, so need to find a source for the apertures, or aperture card. The parts total $153 without apertures, and with a spirit level clip.

I had Distant Thunder make me some apertures for the Numrich Remington sight. They took some minor fitting but work fine. it also allowed me to pick the aperture ring diameter.

Guys,
A question on a Rem Hep:
I know about the above mentioned 32.40 B&M markings
for that ctg. for the Ballard Marlin /Win stolen ctg.

But a Friend is working on a deal for a Rem Hep he says is marked
"32-40  B&A. What would that ctg be?
Is it another marking for the Ballard M/win ctg?
I have not seen the rifle. But I wonder if maybe the "A"
is really part of an "M" stamp ?
Thanks
beltfed/arnie
