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.

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.
