To help our customers be more successful, we offer the following!
Dovetail Sight Blanks
For a great "finished" look when removing the rear sight, use a
dovetail filler blank.
We offer a "Traditional" flat topped dovetail blank reminiscent of the older
Winchester/Marlin/Savage rifles from the past century. This blank will fill
the sharp edged "slot" left when the factory rear sight is removed.
A note about dovetail blanks. To make a blank that would perfectly match
the flats or contour of a factory barrel isn't very practical since those
dimensions all vary depending on make and model. These blanks are made
slightly oversize and fitting, tapping in, etc. a perfectly shaped blank would
be difficult due to sharp blank edges that would deform during installation.
We have STAINLESS also available in the modern rounded top version shown below.
Stainless blanks are not available in the "Vintage" shape.
(Dovetail blanks require slight fitting to your rifles dovetail.
Please see instructions on our TECHNICAL info page)
Our Stainless Blanks have this profile.
DOVETAIL SIGHT BLANK
With Aperture Storage
Handy for storing an extra aperture
or a different size.
Also a SAFE Place to store your aperture while using the SKINNER SIGHT as a GHOSTRING!
Available in solid Stainless and Blue Steel
These are the same as our standard dovetail slot blanks with the
addition of a locking screws to hold firmly in place when
used on a gun with a slightly oversized dovetail slot.
Note: Rossi's of more recent manufacture (2010 ~ Present)
often have an oversized dovetail. These blanks work
well in this situation.
BLUE STEEL ~ STAINLESS STEEL $16 Each
We have these screws available in
both 8-40 and 6-48 sizes.
These are often lost and re-
placements are difficult to find.
Use the 8-40

After trimming your front sight use
SKINNER BLUE to touch up the white metal
Cold blue is the best way to touch up those nicks and scratches and re-blue the top of your front sight after trimming to your exact height.
Our eye dropper bottle will conserve
your SKINNER BLUE and keep it fresh
for a long period of time.
Blue, Applicators & Instructions included
I've been using and maintaining firearms virtually all of my life. We have tried many different products in search of the "perfect" solution for cleaning, preserving, protecting and lubricating our guns. Years ago a friend from Zimbabwe introduced me to BALLISTOL. I'd tried the rest and finally found the BEST!
This product was developed by German Chemists for the German Army in 1904 as a "one product does all" to protect, preserve, and clean metal, wood, and even leather. My field experience is that it does ALL of the above!
Use this special oil to protect the finish of your Skinner Sights.

Skinner Spare Parts
This kit includes each of the screws, wrenches, and
soft metal shims used with our windage adjustable sights.
SIGHT ADJUSTMENT PUNCH
Is hard to find.
This elegant tool is used to drift Skinner Dovetail Sights for
and to remove and replace front sights and Dovetail Blanks.
Our punch has a special "FLAT" to glide along the bottom of the dovetail slot and give you a better purchase on the drifted sight. This is the same punch I have used for years and still use today in the Skinner Sight Shop
Shipped with the three sizes Hex Key Wrenches used to mount and adjust SKINNER SIGHTS. (.050", 1/16", 3/32) not shown
Protect the gun and use proper tools to install
and adjust your SKINNER SIGHTS!
AS SEEN ON TRIGGER TIME TV
Is one of those items you see and instantly think....
"WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS??"
Steve Anderson is the guy who DID think and its GENIOUS!
This SPRING LOADED sight driver eliminates most need for a hammer and punch to REMOVE, INSTALL, and ADJUST your dovetailed sights.
It is excellent for adjusting windage on the Skinner Sights.
The amount of impact is easily controlled via how much the spring is retracted before releasing. From a very gentle "TAP" to a more forceful "WHACK" and more easily controlled. No more slipping and causing other damage.
I've been using one for several years now and wouldn't be without it.
Steve and I collaborated to bring this out with both our unique Skinner FLAT on one side of the punch to better follow the bottom of the dovetail slot and give more purchase on the sight AND... Nylon on one end for a total non marring punch for use on brass or steel and when more impact is needed, the brass end will be softer than the steel sights yet have enough impact to move the sight as needed. This is the best of both worlds!
Try one out.... They are amazing!
"Safe Sided" Triangular File
One of our "Little Tricks"
We use in the SKINNER SIGHTShop is what we call a "SAFE" sided file.
This is a standard 6 inch
triangular file (60 deg) that has the teeth on one side ground off. Using this file allows you to file only on the "SLOPE" of the sight and not change the depth of cut.
You can do this to your own file or buy one from us.
We offer them here for our customers convenience.
(files can be hard to grind...) $20
TAP AND DRILL SETS
We know there are some "DYI" customers out there. You have the ability to do a simple drill and tap (like on a Henry H001 Cover) and would prefer to
"Do It Yourself"
In the world of Firearms there are two common sight mounting screw sizes.
Most common is the size 6-48 screw yetmost Marlin and Henry Rifles
(Lever Action Models) use the more robust 8-40 size screw.
These are not common "hardware store" sizes and its often difficult to find the correct tap and drill set. To make that easier we now offer them as a set.
A set consists of ONE tap and ONE Drill for the size you choose.
These are the same tools we use in the SKINNER SIGHT Shop
MADE IN USA
All standard drill and tap procedures apply
Wear Safety Glasses / Not gauranteed against breakage
6-48 or 8-40 Drill and Tap sets ~ $15
FRONT SIGHT PAINT PENS
THESE ENAMEL PAINT PENS WORK GREAT!!!
(this is a short version of the full description found
I've been teaching Hunter Safety and Survival classes for over 20 years. One of the keys to OUTDOOR SURVIVAL is the ability to start a fire under any condition or weather. For years I've been carrying one of these all metal MAGNESIUM FIRE STARTERS. This fire starter has no limit to shelf life, will start hundreds of fires, and is always ready when you need it. (Unlike butane lighters that can leak/run
out of fuel )
We recommend this as part of any survival pack.
$7 (Worth its weight in GOLD if you ever NEED it)
