I've had some cheap old Copperhead red dot on my Sheridan plinker and either the dot wend all out of focus or my eyes have (It's tough to get old) because it is no longer a dot. I was going to put the original rear dovetail sight back on but after a few years I have lost track of the parts.
Not interested in mounting a scope to it because I do not like the ergonomics of pumping the gun with a scope mounted and a long eye relief (pistol) scope is of no interest to me. So, I just want to go back to the old iron sights.
Anyone know of a good source for replacement parts?
Alternatively, what are anyone's thoughts on the Williams rear sight? My gun is a 1997 or so model C9A and it appears that it is milled, drilled and tapped on the receiver already so that would be a drop in solution that would be a bit better than the stock item. Not sure about the hole pattern, though. it looks like the centers are too close for the Willaims but I dont now exactly how far the holes are on center on that sight.
The Williams #64 is the right peep sight for Crosman built Sheridan and Benji rifles. Pyramyd Air has them. I think Crosman stopped carrying them.
For the factory rear sight you can order the parts from Crosman:
1 - 397-027 (sight)
1 - 397-030 (elevation screw)
2 - 397-026 (wedges)
Just call Crosman customer service at 1-800-724-7486 during business hours.
Don't be so quick to try the scout scope. I thought it was weird when I first read about it. Now I wouldn't shoot a Benji or Sheridan without one. Or you could forward mount a better dot sight too.
I plink, therefore I am.
