I need some advice on the front sight of my rifle. The brass bead on the marbles sight appears to be 1/16 in diameter and im having trouble seeing it. Without replacing the sight is their a way to mount a bigger bead to the sight itself? Maybe something makeshift so to speak.

Hey there gunnut -- I can't think of anything easier than bumping it out of the dovetail and replacing it with a bigger bead, blade or fire-sight. Of course there is the orange traffic cone and duct tape alteration... Best regards. Wind

Depends on how big you want to go, but common acid core solder sticks to brass easily you could build it up or solder a larger brass bead to the old one. Most often I would recommend a 1/8th wide Patridge style sight they are very easy to see and the flat top gives good definition during aiming.
