Has anyone put a Skinner Express on their Zane Grey? I'm wondering what front sight you used with it? The Zane Grey has a tapered octagon barrel that requires a tall front sight.

Thanks for your time,
John

I have one and used our .650" tall front sight.

Never any promises. Please read the sticky above "Will the Skinner Sight work with my factory front sight". (I know this is not the question asked here, but the information in the sticky will help define the process of front sight selection)

Even though the Zane Grey has a nicely (and I might say, the Zane Grey is a real "classic" with a lot of charm) tapered octagon Barrel the difference in diameter from some of the round barrel models may be the same or close to the same. I'd have to measure, but from memory it seems the height of the bottom of the dovetail above the bore is probably very similar to the Model 30A (again, calling on my memory) which had the front sight dovetailed directly into the barrel.

Hope that helps!

Andy
