Hey guys -

Anyone know offhand if there are metal replacements sights for the 747, or ones off another gun, that'll fit? I have one on the way to replace one I had stolen years back, so I don't recall if they're in a dovetail or what right now.

The plastic ones on the 747 are a weak spot for me.

Thanks!

Joe

Joe,
The 777 had metal sights.
The 747 and 717 share the same plastic sights.
You use a scope base designed for the IZH46M.
The a scope or a dot will do fine.
Daisy still provides sights for the 747

Right, thanks for the info. I was aware of that, and actually the one I have coming has a base and dot on it, but I want to go back to open sights, and was hoping there could be an upgrade out there.

of the gun on the 747 and are different
so you would have to replace them and find the metal sights

so give a call to Daisy to first see if any of the parts are available

diagram and pricing

I myself have a 717-747-777 hybrid and would like to see myself if the sights are still available and the top clam shells but I'm not holding my breath

Steve Martens makes some of the best sights for the 747. Contact him at smartensj@gmail.com

you will need to replace the front sight. The metal rear sight on a 777 is taller than the plastic version on the 717/747 models, thus, a taller front sight is required. I learned this after purchasing a used 777 where the point of impact was about 8" high at 10 meters. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why the pistol was shooting so high with the rear elevation set as low as possible. It was only after noticing a photo image on the internet I discovered the issue. That photo showed a 747 and a 777 side by side. The front sight on a 777 is taller.

JG Airguns may have some of these taller front sights in stock. That's who I contacted and he was able to hook me up with the proper front sight. You would need to specify the taller sight, however. When I was initially communicating with him he was unaware the 777 had a taller front sight than the 717/747 models. If you simply order the part from his website, you may end up with a 717/747 front sight.

Lastly, Mugs is correct about Steve Martens and his quality sights for the Daisy pistols. His sights are popular among air pistol silhouette shooters.
