Gamo Bone Collector, .22 cal, Iron Sights !
« on: June 07, 2020, 04:29:50 PM »
Hello,

I am not sure if this is the correct Forum to ask questions, I looked around but things have changed since I was here last.  Please move as necessary !

I have a Gamo, Bone Collector, .22 cal, Trigger Mod, Gas Cylinder Mod., 875 fps, recorded !
I pull down rabbits at 100 feet, a great rifle except for one thing, the Scope !
It is lacking and I would rather use hard sights.

I am looking for two things, first has anyone already done this mod ?

AND... What Sight did you use or have you heard being used ?

I found some Ruger .22 Sights, the rear bolt on but the front I am not sure how they mount, actually sounds right but I thought there might be others.

On the Scope, don't get me wrong it works, but at the distance I am shooting the scope is more of a nuance than the hard sight would be.  Right now I am using the center line of the barrel to get my sightings on, it works, but I was hoping for some good sights.

If anyone is interested I shoot Crosman .22 cal., 14.3 gr, Domed Pellets, I like them appear to be the most accurate for my use, and they work for Rabbits and ground Squirrels.

Thanks in advance for any comments, take care and stay safe with all of the problems going on in the world !

Gamo Bone Collector, .22 cal, Iron Sights ! What and Where ?
« Reply #1 on: June 28, 2020, 03:53:49 PM »
OK... so it has been a month with no reply !
I am assuming no one has done an Iron Site Mod to a Gamo Bone Collector and /or no one has found it necessary to do a Sight Mod.

So be it, but I was wondering if anyone knows of a set of Sights that might work on my Bone Collector, the rear sights doesn't seems like a problem, it is the front sights that is giving me a headache !

Since I first posted I have looked at a Set of Ruger 22, Receiver Mounted Sight Set... but no way, within my knowledge base to mount the font sights.
I am looking at the Williams Receiver Sights, they mount to the existing Dove Tail Rear Mount, I like that, that end of the gun has the problem solved, but nothing on the front sights.

My next door neighbor, also a member of this Site, (LoL), I don't know his handle but he said he might have the solution I am looking for or the front sights, tomorrow morning will see what is going to happen.
I was glad he talked to me today, he had friends over with a bunch of high end PCP Rifles, some of the Scopes... hugh !
This neighbor happens to make competition Air Rifles, some nice stuff, great workmanship, so my hopes are high.

If anyone has any ideas, please post, they don't have to be an exact fix, but something that might help me get a good idea of where I might go.

Thanks to all in advance for any information.
