I got a Williams notch sight recently, so I needed something for the front. To keep things simple I decided to make a post front sight to screw into the air stripper.

I set the rear to the middle of the elevation travel and measured the height of the top of the notch to the centre axis of the barrel (as best as I could judge it from the back of the breech). Then I subtracted half the barrel diameter to get the length of the post, which I cut from 3/16 brass rod. I cut a M5 0.8 thread on the bottom of the post (which would probably have been easier if I had done it before I cut it short) and drilled and tapped a matching hole in the air stripper. The top part of the post was shaped into a wedge with the wide end facing the back, and then painted with primer and a satin black top coat.

Here's how it ended up

That's better than I can normally do, so I'm happy :)
