Hey, I was told I had the wrong sight on the back of my H&R Rifle at a Plainsmen side match, But I don't know where you find any rules about it.

SHB Page 29:

Must use a SASS legal single shot rifle firing a traditional blackpowder rifle or revolver caliber cartridge

 

SASS legal single shot sights found under LR rifle requirements

 

SHB Page 30:

Rear sights must either be open iron sights mounted on the barrel or original style tang or stock wrist mounted peep sights.

Long range rear barrel mounted sights of the flip-up ladder type may use a peephole drilled through the sliding sight leaf.

An example of this is the various ladder type sights used on the Springfield trapdoors.

- Bolt or receiver mounted sights are not allowed

Regardless of what "peep" you have taken out of your sight, you still have a "Peep" Sight.  It is still NOT legal in SASS.  You really need to put a set of legal sights on the rifle.

Williams makes a blade replacement for the peep, which will make the sight legal

Midway USA. 

 

Williams Rear Sight Blade U Notch Aluminum Black

 

Williams Rear Sight Blade Square Notch Aluminum Black

 

You'll also need to buy the base that attaches to the barrel. 

 

Williams WGOS-Small Open Sight Less Blade Fits Barrel Diameter .660" to .730" Aluminum Black

 

Williams WGOS-26mm Open Sight Less Blade Fits Barrel Diameter 1.000" to 1.100" Aluminum Black

So I'm gonna use 1 of the 3 screw holes in the barrel to mount it, correct?

IIRC the Williams sight uses 2 of the three holes. 

 

What I cannot remember is the height needed for both the front and rear sights. Been too long since I owned a Handi Rifle.

Ok anything helps so I can shoot Plainsmen and not get disqualified for using the wrong sights

Question: what if one was to notch out the top of the peep thereby basically turning it into something similar to a full buckhorn sight?

 

No dog in the fight, just idle curiosity...
