Default Stevens No. 106 Rear Sight

Just bought a Stevens 416 and the windage knob on the rear sight only turns about one revolution and stops. That is stops as in metal to metal not sluggish like gunked up. Where would I look for a replacement if I can't find and fix the problem. And, what would be a fair price for one in good working order.

I have a Redfield 75 that came from a Winchester 75 but the mounting plate and receiver screw holes don't match. There may be a Redfield plate for a 416 but I haven't been able to find what to look for.

Any help or ideas appreciated.

Hank

There is a mounting plate for the Redfield 75 sight...one of my 416's has one...






I think I may have a Stevens sight for the 416.

Thank you for the information, folks. I'll see what I can do with it today. The sight doesn't look overly complicated, but that doesn't mean I can correct any problems.

"Calfed" are there any markings on the base of your rear sight that would help me narrow my search? All things equal, I believe I'd rather have the Redfield 75 rear sight on this rifle if it would match with the Stevens front.

Problem solved. Someone had placed a piece of shim stock under the sight tower. Looks like they drove the tower back in the rails because the hole where the windage screw should exit was slightly peened over.

Anyway 45 minutes of tinkering and the sight seems to work fine.

Now to see if I can get the bolt apart and cleaned...

Thanks again for the responses.

Hank

Look for 75-HW, 716002.

Thanks again for the information. I shot the rifle briefly this morning and having the rear sight closer to my eye would be a great improvement over the position of the Stevens rear.

Had 15-20% failures to fire on the first snap so I'll start down that road now.

Get the easy stuff out of the way first. I'd soak the bolt in a light solvent like mineral spirits, rinse in fresh solvent, repeat.
