Hello folks.
I got the 45-70 Handi-Rifle that you all talked me into on another thread I posted. The rifle looks great and I have already installed an Allen butt-stock cartridge carrier.
I have read the FAQ's and HELP thread and I'm still not sure what I need to order for sights.
I want to put a Williams WGRS peep sight on this rifle along with a fiber optic front sight. I am OK with ordering the WGRS but am not sure what I need to get for the front sight.
The barrel diameter at the front sight is .810". I'm assuming I need to order the shotgun shorty ramp for .815" diameter barrels but what height do I need, the 1/8", 3/16", 9/32" or the 3/8" high ramp?
Also what height and width front sight do I need to order to go into the ramp?
I want the sights to be right for 300 grain Winchester factory loads.

Thank you very much!

I posted links to the shotgun shorty ramp and Firesight insert that I used on the 45-70 in the Peep and Firesights link in the FAQs are whatcha need, they'll work perfect if your barrel has a 6-48 front sight screw. ;)
