      Does anyone know if this sight is a good quality?
      I want to put it on a weaver base on a small ring mauser , in .35rem.
      I have removed the clip guide on rear bridge, and have a smooth rear bridge to work with.

      Looks pretty cool. It says

      I’m sure there should be 2 piece Weaver bases for small ring Mauser. Just install the back half and your ready to go if your front sight will match up with the height.

      UTG/Leapers has a very good reputation in the airgun world. They are one of the better scope/sight makers. Yet still manage to keep products reasonably priced.

      Price is right, I may be looking at one of these myself soon. I can see that as a very handi alternative to a Red Dot type sight on anything that has a weaver rail.

      Optics planet has it for 20$. That just might be handy enough to want to have a couple of those on hand.

      Well they arrived, cute little bug. Don’t have it on a gun yet, still thinking and considering.
      Seems like a nicely made little sight.

      Yes, it is a weaver base #18 is the lowest height rear base for mauser bridge. there are several heights available, and Im choosing the lowest. I ordered the sight online from Walmart, of all places, but was $10 shy of free shipping, so I got Hogue grips for a janky old Hi-Power to quantify for free shipping. I’ll let you guys know ow it all works out.

      If anybody knows of a good banded front sight base, .675 ID, please post your findings. I will have to build front sight to suit. I want banded stye front base.

      I do not have this sight, I do have some of their rings and base pieces. Seem to be OK. Good even for the money. None have failed me yet, and every now and then things do get a rough bump.

      This one for a Ruger no1 looks pretty sexy. says it tapers from .665 to .680″. $26.99
      Maybe you could sand the inside out with some sandpaper on a split dowel if it won’t slide right on.

      Thanks,
      I received this rear sight the other day, it is very similar in size to a .30 carb sight, or 1903A3 sight. I have tried both these sights, and they require either a male or female dovetail (which is not on a mauser bridge). This Leapers sight goes on a weaver/picatinny style mount, and is easy to mount on a mauser bridge.

      More details coming as I get it all set up. The next deal is finding correct front height.
