I've got a muzzleloader built from a kit back in the '70s. It's a Kentucky Rifle replica. It clearly says "JUKAR" and "Spain" on the barrel. I would like to replace the front and rear sights, but there are lots of different dovetail sizes out there for muzzleloader sights. I've measured the width of the dovetails on the original front and rear sights with a micrometer, and I'm getting about .333" on both the front and rear sights. The front sight width is about .635", and the rear sight width is about .550". If you know where I might find replacements for these sights, I would love to hear from you. Thanks!


Here are a couple photos of the original sights (note that the blade is missing from the front sight):

What do you want to replace the sights with? Dixie Gunworks probably has different sights, but if you are just looking for something like the original ones, why not get an old junk silver coin and make your own front sight blade out of it like they did in the old days?

Dixie Gunworks is a good call. Thanks very much. Homemade would be kinda fun, but $20 will buy something that's going to look far better than anything I would do.
