Unhappy All optional sights for Browning B92???


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I am still pondering just what open sights to use on my Centennial.For the front Im thinking of having a ramp with dovetail sweated on after milling off that puny slotted block and putting a Brockman partridge post..For the rear I know the basic 3/8" dovetail Marbles Sporting sights or Marlins would work but Im not thrilled about them either,too small a notch and not squared.I like the Millets 100 series adjustable but it would maount right at the dovetail and therfore be closer to the front sight losing sighting radius.Anyone have a ghost ring or aperature that fits this gun and how is it? Anyone with suggestions? (Forget the fire sights-too)

I've got the Ashley Outdoor front sight on my later Brownchester '92. Works well enough now that I haven't installed their rear ring sight.

Charlie you have mail about your ashley front sight

Isnt that the one with the white line up the post? How was it mounted? How does your Browning group on target? Have you ever tried 44 specials?

Yes, the white line - not too authentic, but you can really see it and don't get the glint problem of the original brass bead. It went on the orig. dovetail.

I'm very happy with the gun to 100yds - as far as I can shoot open sights. If I can consisitently keep it in 3-4" at that range, I'm happy. W/O a scope, I don't know how accurate it is, but I suspect "quite." Certainly, more accurate than I am. Open sights are all about practice... Its a woods hunting tool and very nice for that. Makes big holes. It carries good, too.

I shoots specials well. I like the load very much, but generally use mag brass as I don't want a gunk ring - I don't have many spl shells, either.

Marshall's 280 and especially the 265gr WFNGCs are the meow in this rig. I shoot leadhead keith's (250s?) to Special strength in mag brass for plinking and practice. Lots of fun. It's what my Marlin 39 was to me when I was a kid.

Charlie--what original dovetail?

You mean your Browning 92 has a cut dovetail into the barrel?Mine has a small slotted block which holds the tiny blade for the front.Or do you have a ramp with a dovetail cut into it ?

This one is only a couple of years old - it has a standard dovetail in the barrel. You might check with AO to see what they can do with the earlier type.

That's a carbine. I've got the 'rifle': http://www.winchesterguns.com/prodin...d=079&cat=014C

That looks like a blade sight, which is good. Could you either black it or paint it white?

Charlie, its not the color that bothers me....

Its the puny height.Its only sticking up 1/16" inch over the slotted block. If you have a 44mag though your barrel muzzle is the same thickness as mine.So if yours has a dovetaiul wedge cut in it then it must be deep enough-right? My rear sight also stinks,the notch is way too small.I need a larger square type notch.any ideas there.
