I have a Benjamin 397pa that I broke the front sight. I super glued it and filed it down to match and it works good. Anyone ever hear of any other ways to repair this issue?
I would like to put a fiber optic on the 397pa. Anyone have a Crosman Williams 64 peep site they don't need anymore? I can hit a 3/4' washer target at 11-15yds and would like to improve on that.
Thank you in advance for any responses.
sight is available from Crosman and most of the repair guys AB airgun, B&A, Precision Pellet etc. they run about $35.00. As for your front sight, on those guns the proper attachment method would be to solder it in place. But that can start more problems than it fixes if you're not a talented solderer. The two glues that I use for fixes like you've done Loctite BlackMax 380, or Automobile Professional rear view mirror glue. You will probably get more responses to this question on the Vintage,and regular Yellow forums.
Solder a new front sight onto your rifle I am almost positive that I read that someone OUT THERE has those front sights for sale.... Gmail me and I will get the information for you. If you were to carefully de solder the original front sight the new front sight could be bonded(glued) on using one of the bonding agents recommended above.. But once you get that far you might as well solder the new one on....I have used JB Weld and JBQuick with good results... Most epoxy type bonding agents can be 'Flowed' kind of like solder with careful application of heat such as a hair dryer or heat gun... Greg
