I'm finally getting some good groups from my LePage, however, groups are way high (about 10" high at 25 yds). Rather than cut the rear sight, I'd like to replace the front with a high front blade. Anybody know of a source for a 1/4" dovetail front sight? Didn't see anything at Dixie or Numerich.

Track of the Wolf has a large selection of muzzle loading front sights.
Or Numrich Gun Parts Corp. may have something that works. But some items like that can be difficult to locate online . Inquiring for parts assistance from customer service may be helpful.
Is it possible to file down a 3/8" dovetail sight base to fit?

I finally gave up finding a front sight and made one. Now it shoots low but I have enough sight to work with and getting a zero won't be a problem. Test firing, shot 3 shot group at 25 yards, standing, one hand, group measured .466". Think I'll keep this one.
