Good afternoon all – been gone for awhile but finally slowing down and able to focus on some of the fun stuff!  Anyone know of a smith who installs the winchester 98 bolt peep sights?  Or point me in the right direction of some schematics with measurements to mill the bolt on a model 65 (browning reproduction – would never alter an original).  Thanks, Bill

Thanks Clarence for the reference.  I do have one – just looking for a gunsmith who can mill my bolt and mount it.  Harder than I imagined – most smiths are not familiar with the sight – I understand as it is old.  Thanks, Bill

Might be cheaper/easier to look for a milled bolt.  There is a milled bolt for a 71 on ebay right now.  What rifle model are you trying to fit the sight to?

 

Or, just sell the sight to meLaugh, I have a 71 with a milled bolt but no sight…

The 98C bolt peep sight was made exclusively for the Model 65 rifles in the 218 Bee caliber.  For a Model 71, you need a 98A bolt peep sight.
