Hey everyone, Does anyone know the specs on Ruger MK series Dovetails for the rear sight? To make a long story short, A friend of mine got a MKIII that literally didn't come with a dovetail for the rear sight. I told him I'd do a little research to find out what kind of dovetail it needs to fit Ruger MKIII rear sights, but I can't find info anywhere. Someone said it has a 65 degree 0.330" dovetail, but that don't sound right. I measured a rear sight that I ordered for him and it's nowhere near .330". At the bottom it measures 0.550" and is 0.500" just above that (not sure about the angle or how to measure it. I'm hoping to get the info, so I can find the right dovetail cutter for him (he has a milling machine).
Anyone know the dovetail specs on these or what cutter's needed to cut the dovetail or how deep it should be? Dovetail Specs.bmp
(here's some dimensions I took from the rear sight I measured.)
