Foresight Ramp / Wedge

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this sounds vague but i'm looking for what i think is an old piece of kit, one of the wedge / ramp clamps for a foresight - (to fit an Anschutz 1413) that allows you to raise or lower the foresight to change distances easily.

 

Hope that makes sense.

 

Thanks and regards

Do you mean a two-step base? I bought mine from the NSRA shop a few years ago, cost was about a tenner.

Hi, no its not a two step, its a ramp and you can slide the sight up and down and lock it off at any point. I saw it in Fuller's Small-Bore Target Shooting book. i will try to find a photo of one and post it here.

 

Thanks and regards

Oh that one. That was a proprietary design made by Barnett for their short lived smallbore rifle. I don't know if it was sold commercially as an accessory, and doubt it's been made since the 1940s. Anyway it took a special foresight (likely needing the small 9/16in Parker-Hale elements) with an angled base; your Anschutz 1413 won't fit without a custom made adaptor.

Gehmann do make a sliding raiser block set, but I think these may be only for 1913 barrels/foresights with the shallow dovetail, rather than the deeper dovetail of the 1413.

 

If you want quick distance changes, a stepped foresight base or flip-over foresight tunnel would be much easier to find.
