advice needed - mount creedmore rear sight on Trapdoor

Posted by HikerLT on Saturday, 25 October 2014, at 5:21 p.m.

Hi All,

I'm looking for advice on mounting a creedmore type rear sight on a Trapdoor rifle ( a H&R reproduction ).

unmarked Creedmore style long range tang peep sight that is very similar but not exact to those offered by David Pedersoli. The sight has numbers on the left side from 0 to 5.0 and the eye cup has a slight amount of windage adjustment available. The hole spacing measures 1 1/2" apart (center to center) with the front hole being oblong for minor tolerance differences.

I assume it won't mount to the one screw in the rifle tang, and that is has to be further back , in the wood of the stock. What is the best dimension/location ? I have searched for pictures showing the base of the sight and relative distance from the tang, but no luck so far.

Thanks, LT
