Diana 48E front sight
The front sight on my 48E has been partially broken off. I'll never find another so am hoping to weld up and repair this one. So, how tall is site from top of barrel to top of site? Will site tap out of mount on barrel in either direction or is it in a taper? Thanks, Tom
It depends on the exact age of the rifle, these are mine.
Top one has a 11mm high frontsight and bottom one 14mm and they both drift out from left to right as they are tapered (holding rifle in shooting position).
You can make a new one from a steel bolt and shape it with a file. 🙂
Frank, I can not load the photo. There are photos of my rifle under the heading "Diana 48E?? I think mines a later model but not sure. I'm new to these rifles.
If you send me your emai adress, I will send you the pics.
