    Default Gunsmith needed- adding open sights

    I want to add a set of simple open sights to my left handed Ruger 308. I want a single fixed leaf rear sight and a ramped front sight. Can anyone recommend a good gunsmith willing to do this. Am based in Natal but don’t mind driving far for the right person. A few years ago my local custom gun maker in Natal told me to rather buy a rifle with sights so not much help there.
    Thanks.

    On Jaracal there is a list of tried and trusted names of gunsmiths. None mentioned are in KZN.

    This might not be much help.
    But I used a gentlemen once for a simple upgrade to my G19 trigger. He works a few days a week at Ihawu Firearms in Pinetown .

    Hi, I’m not sure if this is what you looking at doing, maybe you can contact this gunsmith. He is on Facebook.

    Can only assist in CPT. As I once bought a Sako 22LR quad. And just looked dull without a front sight like a CZ. Although using a scope with it.

    So Alfred at the then Bullet Central fitted for me. They no longer called Bullet Central

    Try Alan Henry, only heard good things about him. Think he is based in Durban/Toti area. You would have to google him for contact details.

    NGC do really great work but won't be cheap. Confirmed located in Toto. Give yourself time to ogle some of their custom rifles, especially big bores.

    I second that.
    Work is good, but won't come cheap
