Andy,

I REALLY LIKE the Black Gold sights I've been seeing in the rimfire threads...Not sure if this has been addressed, but I just recently bought a blued one for my Mountie (also bought a solid brass for my 1894 last year). Here's my question...on the Mountie, is it possible just to order the windage insert and turn my blue sight into a black gold one? Not trying to be a cheapskate, I'm just askin'...

Thanks,

Bill

Hello Bill,

Every skinner sight dovetail windage slide is hand fit so its not possible to just send you a slide.

I can retro fit a customers sight for $30 (a bit more than ordering it already assembled since we have to fit and totally refinish the sight) OR... Consider putting a brass peep stem on your blue sight. Its not "quite" as pretty but it adds some "bling" that will give great eye appeal esp. if your rifle has a gold trigger. We have added "STEMS" to our Special Item Page @ http://www.skinnersights.com/testimonials_12.html

We also have now added spare screws and wrenches for customers wanting extras and 8-40 receiver filler screws in both blue and stainless.

Skinner "BLACK GOLD" is being ordered on about 1/2 of the sights we sell. I think folks are likeing it... :)

Not a problem at all, Andy. I will put my blued sight on another 39 I have and order a Black Gold sight for my favorite Mountie...you will be getting an order from me soon.

Thanks,

Bill

Drills,

Your 39-A looks great with the brass stem...I still want to hold out for the full Black Gold set-up for my favorite Mountie, but the brass stem by itself adds a nice subtle touch of class to the rifle.
Thanks for sharing,

Bill
