Evening Friends,

I am seriously searching for a top quality vernier sight, at least within my budget to not exceed $400-$500. I have read much about Baldwin, Shaver, Distant Thunder, and of course Kermit Hoke. I am leaning toward the Hoke for many reasons, but I would appreciate the experiences from you folks out.

Best regards,

Sandy

I've got one of Lee Shaver's on an H&R Offficers model Springfield. It is dead on accurate and repeatable. Havent tried sights made by the others you mentioned to compare though.

I use Baldwin. The guy who got me into BPCR uses mostly MVA.

I bought a rifle that came with a Stevens sight. It looked like good quality but I was already used to the service rifle adjustments of the Baldwin and sold it to fund another Baldwin.

I see a number of the Kelley sights on the line, with color case steel and bright brass, they are pretty.

A Lee Shaver Lee Shaver is good but I started out with one of his economy conversions of an inexpensive import and outgrew it. His Soule windage drum was fine, but the cheapo elevation was erratic.

Got mine from Track of the Wolf. Cabela also has a few.
