I have a gamemster 242 that has a sight issue. The original bar sight is bent in front of the dovetail asre. The sight step is mising sadly.
Is there a way to bend it straight so it will fit again, and if not, should i cut the bad part off? Its a standard fo the time 3/8 dovetail, how would i go about finding a sight that woudl fit the dovetail, as well as working with the perfect condition front sight?

Lets try again on the model number.
I have no idea which rifle a gamemster 242 is so I can see what sight is uses.
The gamemaster is the Remington model 141. I'd junk the factory sight (Oh, that's right, I DID...) and install a Williams ( www.williamsgunsight.com ) guide sight instead, as it is so much easier and accurate to adjust. Myself, I have a front firesight and micrometer peep rear on mine...

Could be a 141 Gamemaster.
Or it could be a 760 Gamemaster.
They were both Gamemasters.
All I know for sure right now is it can't be a 242 Gamemaster!
model 141 in 35 remington, a midyear 1946 made urchin.
I tapped the bar sight in tonight to have a looksy now that i got that crappy scope off it. Rather hard to get a sight picture against neon construction paper at 10 feet, just as bad agaisnt a white wall at that range.
Im anxious to keep the same rear sight height as i have no idea as to how to do the calculations for figuring out new front sight heights, and i know that it will be hard to get proper replacement front sights these days.
I like the flip sight on y 10-22, seems angling it differently can help compensate for different bullet speeds for soem reason. Not sure if thats just a mental thing or not. WOuld somethign like that help?

Most all of them have only a spring loaded UP & DOWN position, and anything in between would not stay where you put it due to recoil.
The folding feature is just to get the sight down out of the way of a scope, or for storage so it doesn't get whacked out of adjustment.
