This is my first post on this forum and I thought I would pick your brains. I have a Traditions Hawken 50 caliber percussion and was wondering what kind if any sights would work on these. The old eyes are not that good anymore and I was thinking about a globe front and rear tang sight. Is this possible on this gun and would it be beneficial to me? Thanks for any info....Bull[8D]
Have you shot yours yet? Would it make any sense to consider putting a red dot on the rifle?
I did buy the manual and am trying to brush up on the drill. I am open to any advice from folks who have fired these guns and feel comfortable with their operation.
I have a similar problem with my eyes. I can see the sight if I put on my glasses but then the target is blurred. Now if I take my glasses off I can see the target fine but the sights are blurred. Can't win!
I did buy a Meritt optical device and stuck in on my glasses for target work. It forces the eye to look through a peephole and then you can see both the target and sights much better. I would assume that your tang sight with the peephole might work the same way.
