Thanks, Duck!
Forgot to finish the last post.  The Midway order was a couple of trigger springs for my Ruger M77, a 3/8" dovetail slot blank, and another WGRS (Williams rear sight) and a 3/16" square notch WGOS blade to go with it.  Here is a pic of the documentation that came with the blade.  It does indeed fit the WGRS base.  However, my eyes won't focus very well on the rear sight even at arms length so I'm not sure I'll keep it on any of my guns.  I can report that on my 2300KT with 12.75" barrel, at arms length the Crosman front sight pin fills the rear notch about 1/2 way.  That leaves 1/4 of the width of the notch as air-space on either side of the pin.  That is how I was taught that open sights should look.  Also, I haven't shot it yet but it seems that this 3/16" tall WGOS blade on the WGRS base is going to be close to the right height for the 1700-023 Muzzle Brake and 2300-028 Front Sight Post with plenty of adjustment.  I will let y'all know for sure when I can shoot it.

Hi Mr. Ark I appreciate your inputs. There is also a cheap UTG SWAT (amazon) for around $110 w/c I think is already a bargain..Best regards.

I have no experience with the Varmint. I currently run a Hawke Panorama EV 4-12x40 AO on my Beeman R7 and a UTG 3-12x44 AO SWAT with 100mm side wheel on my Beeman HW97K. I like Leapers/UTG because they are a good value. But, Hawke has clearer optics, and the EV models offer a very generous field of view. The UTG works very well, but the optics are a little fuzzy so accurate focusing is difficult. The Hawke is a pleasure to use, but the 1/2 mil dot reticle is pretty busy.

I had two Hawke Airmax EV 4-12 scopes and each one had an internal misalignment that would cause POI to shift when the AO was changed. That made the scopes pretty useless for target shooting at different ranges. I threw in a few more bucks to trade up to the Panorama. I will probably not buy another Hawke after my experience. I am looking at equal or better brands for my next purchase - Vortex, Clearidge, and Swift.

You know Mr. BFC I sold my Hawke to a friend of mine w/o any monetary gain..Been reading about Hawkes not being good enough and he was more than happy to take it off my hands. I did not hesitate..It's good for you because if there are defects you can return it but in my case me being in the Phils. it's not an option..

I think you should get the Clearidge this is actually my next purchase it seems you have read my mind sir..My box in Kansas is almost full but I am not putting it there..I prefer it handcarried and that would be in May when my cuz goes back to the US for a 3-week visit..Please let us know of your findings if you ever purchase this brand...Btw what model of the Clearidge line are you planning to purchase? Best regards.

Hope so! The factory rear sight was making the pistol shoot a little high with no more adjustment left. I read a few things where people remove some material from the notch, but I figured ah what the hell...I'll just order a new one.

Toooo late! lol  Next thing on the list is a barrel band with fiber optic sight. Actually maybe a set of wood grips if I can find them for a decent price. Anyone have any suggestions for them?

Iagent has a set of walnut burl ambidextrous wood grips in the sale gate. Says for 2240, but 1377 uses the same stock grips.

Do you have to pick them up or do they deliver customs parcels?
