the barrel on my rifle has 2 dove tail slots. Rear one measures 1/2″ at the wide part on the bottom and has a small screw hole in front of it to hold the front of the ladder sight. Not enough threads to measure. Don’t want to risk screwing this up so hoping someone here knows the size they used. The other dove tail slot ahead of this one measure 3/8″ at the wide part on the bottom. Assuming this one was’t the factory cut.

Here is the picture. That is definitely added after the fact and the 1/2″ dovetail is not Winchester. Since its not a original Winchester sight there is no way of knowing what threading it would be. Who ever mounted it to the barrel could of used any screw.
