This Ladder Foresight gets over the problem of poor location for refit after removal by not using a clamping type mechanism. The sight has a sleeve that is permanently fitted to the barrel, a locking ring then clamps the ladder to the barrel, precision flats on the sleeve make sure there is perfect alignment, this makes the sight easy to remove for transportation of the rifle, there is no risk of bending the ladder frame and guarantees return to an exact windage zero.
The sight has been designed to give a round foresight image, this makes the sight easier to centralize, and it has a fully threaded tunnel to accept all metric thread foresight accessories both 22mm and 32mm. Because the locking collar for the sight is on the barrel and not on the tunnel, the exact positioning of an ‘Eagle Eye’ is guaranteed, because it is fixed permanently.
The long travel on the ladder allows the sight to be used with Picatinny/Weaver Rail mounted rear sights which naturally have a higher sight line and on military style rifles with high sight lines, the tunnel also sits very low to the barrel line to give maximum elevation, the sight has 60 minutes of elevation movement.
A Rain Guard Kit is also available as an upgrade. This is available for both the front light tube and rear light tube. It is easily disassembled for cleaning.
In all cases the complete tunnel assembly can be removed for safe transportation or storage.
The sight base has a length of 45mm an will require the barrel to be turned to 19mm for fitment using high strength engineering adhesives for secureing. An additional grub screw is located at the underside of the barrel sleeve to aid in set up and securing. Please note that fitting of your foresight must be level with your rearsight and so we advise that a Gunsmith is used for this, we are able to carry out this task usually within 1 hour.
Please note that Light Shades, Eagle Eyes and Irises are not included in the price and may be purchased seperatley.
