|Brownell's Gunsmith Supply carries a Williams Foolproof rear aperture
sight, #FP-SW, made for the 1911, and is not too expensive. (Pierre mentioned
it will also work on the K31.) There are 2 holes to drill
and tap, on the "beltline" of the receiver, and my receiver was not so hard as to require special drills or taps. I added the Target Knobs, also from Williams through Brownell's.

|I ordered two "long" knobs, then had to cut one to length, so a "long" and a "short" are probably right. There will be a small notch to cut into the stock for clearance.|
Stock relieved for rear sight base. Don't forget to seal the exposed wood!
|The Lyman 17AML front sight (same supplier) matches up nicely, giving a very good match-type sight picture on a bullseye target.|

|Its male dovetail will need to filed down a bit to fit the female dovetail
on the front sight base. It won't work on the bigger K31-type front sight.
Wanting a high-power type sling, I ordered Brownell's
Brownell's competitor Plus sling, dyed dark, and its new front swivel.
|An oval of self-adhesive bathtub no-slip material (Wal-Mart) makes the steel buttplate less slippery. I also put the no-slip on my K31 buttplate.|

|The heart inletted into the buttstock is for my missus - good wives
are scarce and dear! The Swiss rifles have been a lot of fun for
me, I hope
you enjoy yours as well!
