I have a springer with a rear sight that moves after every shot,it's hard to get an accurate shot with it.I was looking for a red dot sight but the fact that it will be useless without a battery once it runs out isn't a good option for me.What would you recommend for a replacement sight i can mount on the dovetail of my springer?It's a cheaper gun so I'm not into putting more than $20 into it,mainly use it for plinking with my friend while we have a few.

A few what? You're not mixing shooting with drinking alcohol are you?

yes sir,let me assure you it is at a very secluded cabin only accessible by canoe,via a few portages.We make it out there every once in a while and never use anything more powerful than a 500fps air gun.
Now...anyone have any suggestions for a decent rear sight?
Criticisms? :twisted:

More info or pics of the rear site may result in a cheap fix.

20$ isn't much for most options... I would say maybe try asking around on the forum if anyone has one from your particular model of airgun... Or just epoxy it down where you want it, LOL.

Excellent decision. Now you can have a few to your heart's content and not kill anyone. Except with your music - and please don't send us a sample :D not even your attempt at "Don't believe a word" which has probably the easiest, funkiest Bass line known to man.
