Our BARREL MOUNT sights are shipped with a .125" Aperture installed. For the forward mounted sights, a .125" is the smallest practical size for normal shooting.
We recommend the .040 (fine) for target shooting in good light and the .125 (large) for dim light hunting. Remember, you can always remove the aperture completely for a .200" "Ghost Ring" effect. This is useful in very dim light and for up close encounters with dangerous game.
You can also order several different size apertures and use them interchangeably as light conditions require.
Purchase all 5 Aperture sizes for $50
Our apertures are threaded 12-40 and will fit most other manufactures 7/32-40 sight mounts.
