My gunsmith called to say our flintlocks are done. He mounted the Williams sights and I went to pick them up. Man do they look good. This evening We took the open sights off as they were about 8 inches in front of the new peep sights. Our new sights are mounted just behind the breech block and a little on the tang. I assumed he would have to cut a little wood off each side of the tang but he did even better he milled off the sight and it looks like it grew there. Fortunately the new peep sight is at the same level as the open sights so he lined up the new sight with the old sight and it should be real close. We are both real pleased with the result.

That really sounds great. Could you post a picture of the sight on the rifle? I would like to see that. Also I can not wait for you to get out there and try them out. Good luck with the new sight.

Nice looking job there. The one they did for me was done different.

I tried to post pics of my job which is much the same as Erics but failed miserably to get them posted.
