Hi 450450 Sniper said:You'll probably have problem with it shooting low, as the front sight will be too tall on a base.
I put the Lyman 17AHB (it's the lowest model) on my 39A. I had to pony up $80 to have a gunsmith cut a front dovetail and install it, but it was well worth it.
He cut it so the front of the Target Globe sets back .060" from the muzzle.
The original front sight holes were unaffected and filled with filler screws. The farthest one forward is covered by the knurled cap that screws the apertures into place.
The farthest one back is visible, but to the untrained eye it looks like a factory install.
The cost of a Skinner Rear Peep, the Lyman 17AHB and the gunsmithing was $180. It was worth every penny and I would do it again.
Hope this helps you.
Hi 450450 Sniper said:I really like my Target Globe because of the different inserts that can be installed.
I don't know what your taste is or what function it will serve.
You could always buy the XS one piece front sight..........you might have to contact XS sights directly. I only see the 'kit' available on Brownells site.
Hi 450450 Sniper said:It's a standard 3/8" dovetail.
Remember, I had a gunsmith cut a dovetail in the barrel for my front sight.

Hi Jackjack therwhanger said:I rigged out a Mountie with a Lyman receiver sight (steel) and the 17A front aperature in the mid-70s. I would call it anything but a waste. Ask all the *****, prairie dogs, crows, opossums, snakes, tuttles, rabbits, and etc that fell prey to the little outfit what they thought. The gold or ivory beads are not bad, but the firesight is the one that misses out for me. The 17A has lots of choices for inserts. The posts found a lot of use for hunting and the circle was handy for paper targets.To each his own. Good day, Jack
