View Full Version : Golden Boy front sight
Just picked up a used Golden Boy for $300 (everything is in excellent condition with exception to a couple of dings in the rear stock from hanging on the wall). At any rate, I love the rifle BUT I need to do something about the front sight.
The blade on the front sight is just way too small for me. I can pick it up but it's just not comfortable. Any recommendations on replacement? Is there maybe some kind of fiber optic sight I can pick up for it? Thanks.
I checked on there but don't believe I saw anything. Midway had an option or two but the reviews seemed iffy. Cheaper than dirt had a set that looked to be for the golden boy mag (which I assume would work for .22lr) but I didn't want to have to replace the rear sight.
Hoping to find someone that has actually replaced their sight and had good luck with it.
I have a Golden Boy in 22 Win Mag and a Big Boy in 357
Ha! Emailed Henry and they were little to no help. All they did was tell me to contact Marbles which supplies them with the sights for the golden boy. I guess all I really need is the height of the sight (apparently the dovetail is 3/8") and then I can go find one.
Henry's customer service is OUTSTANDING.
Ask the what you are looking for, they will tell you or point
you in the right direction. What did Marbles say?
Here is what Marbles replied:
"Thank you for your request. Our part number for the green front sight is #204536 and for the orange is #204535.
If you have any further questions, let me know."
Now I'll see where I can find one at. I'll post what I find once I get one installed.
Update: I found these at MidwayUSA and they are $14.45. I will likely order one this weekend.
