Curious as to what anyone has done with success for a good front globe sight on a TC Omega? Will be a William FP rear peep and wanting a globe for the front but I can’t find much info or many options.

Straight crosshair insert works great in bright light. Not worth a darn in low light. I suggest using something other than crosshairs.

I've always went with two inserts to give me this sight picture on my TC Omega. Works best for my eyes.

Bwht4X4, That is a pretty nice set up, could you share some of the specs on the front sight, I am looking to do the same on my Omega, but unsure on which dovetail/marble front sight (or similar), would fit an Omega best and Lyman Glove?? I am using a E. Arthur Brown Company, Inc. PeepRib Peep that works well, but my factory front sight covers the whole target at 100 yards.

I am reluctant to get rid of my Omega, tempted to upgrade. The Williams™ Western Precision Muzzleloading Sight Set looks like would be ideal, but does not state if it would fit an Omega.


Anybody have similar issues or have found something that works with an Omega?

It's been a while since I did this, but let me check on it. I think it's a Lyman globe site with Lee Shaver inserts.

I did mine way before this article came out.

That is a good article from go hunt; my fear is that the Omega uses an 8x40 thread screw for the front sight, and most other front sights/ramps use 6x48 thread only. So not sure what the workaround is without getting a new hole drilled. Maybe I am overthinking it?

I didn't drill or tap anything. Let me see if I can find the receipts to the items I bought.

If the sight base has holes for a #6 and the barrel is tapped for a #8, just drill out the screw clearance hole for a #8. You really want the counterbore to be flat bottom and they make cutters for it, but it would probably be good enough to just use your next drill up from the #8 head for the counterbore.
