D-853 front sight / barrel weight on a .177 Cman barrel.
« on: January 10, 2019, 11:50:58 PM »
I've seen a few 13xx builds with the Daisy 853 front sight / barrel weight mounted to them and I'm wondering if they mount right on as is or if there's some modification required.

I've got a cr781 coming that I'll be putting a rifled barrel on and since it's got welded sight I figured if I have to buy sights for it anyway I might as well go with some target sights and make something I've never seen done before.

If you call your shots some days you kill it and some days you choke, some days you blast off and some days you just smoke.

I know nothing about the front sight
But their rear sight I've put on a few
 that needed something to get it low enough to sight in
and they worked well.

I have the 5899 on my 880 and made an extended front sight for it, but it would be awesome if the whole front assembly could mount right onto a crosman barrel.
I'm hoping for Plug and play instillation.

 the internal diameter of the barrel weight is 7/16, I do know that. with that said weather or not the height of the globe sight will line up is a different story.

Thanks for the info.
It should fit on my gun, and I think the height might be fine so I guess I'll have
 To order everything next week and see how it goes.

I'm fine with being the guinea pig, that is of course I am in fact the first to do this with a 781.

It turns out the one I was looking at online is not the right one, the actual front sight off the 853 which is compatible with the 5899 rear sight has to be ordered directly from Daisy.
It's much cheaper anyways so I'm happy about that.

I kind of had it in mind to save the original barrel, but since it's got both front and rear sights welded on I'll have to cut one of them off.
It's rusty anyways, so it's no big deal.
