The Distant Thunder sight is made with the level inside the globe to help prevent glare and can be ordered with a set of 4 standard inserts in the most popular sizes (.090, .100, .110 & .120”) or with a set of custom inserts at additional cost. There is a setscrew in the dovetail to lock the sight in place. An octagon globe is also available.
A unique feature of the Distant Thunder sight is that the sight globe is angled to allow the shooter to look straight through the globe at longer ranges. With other sights the globe sits parallel to the barrel and as the rear sight is raised for long range shooting the front sight becomes elliptical. This reduces the field of view and the amount of light passing through to your eye. You also see the top of the globe on other sights, which can cause problems with glare under sunny conditions. The Distant Thunder sight reduces these problems and optimizes the sight picture at longer ranges.
Two models are available: the mid-range (200-800 yards) and the long-range (800-1200 yards). Both are made for 3/8”, 7/16” and .450” dovetails. I can also make to fit other size dovetails or at custom angles.
Each Distant Thunder sight comes with 4 lollypop inserts in the most popular sizes, .100, .110, .120, and .130” inside diameters with a .060” wide annulus. The heavier annulus allows for better sight definition and does not tend to blur out like thin wire inserts can. Instead of the 4 lollypop inserts, you can to specify any number of custom inserts, for just the difference in price from the lollypops.
Front Sight with Level and 4 inserts…………………………$163 plus shipping (see chart)
Please specify mid-range (200-800 yards) or long-range (800-1200 yards).

Long-Range Tang Sights
I have temporarily suspended manufacturing my tang sights, but plan to resume making them in time for the 2013 shooting season. O'Hare is a one man shop, me, and the orders for my tang sights got to a point that I could not keep up with the demand. I am in the process of tweaking the design to improve the manufacturability and the quality. Once that is done I will most likely make 2 or 3 limited runs of the tang sights each year. The actual number in each run will somewhat depend on the demand from my customers, but I see it as the only way to be fair to them. Having people send me payment for a product that they would then have to wait up to 6 weeks for just wasn't working for anyone.
It will be posted on the website once I'm ready for production and posted again when the sights are available. I will also compile a list of customers who want one of my tang sights and advise them when to send payment so they are not having their money out there for more a couple of weeks before receiving their sight.
If you would like to be on that list I will be happy to add your name and email.

Custom Sights and Inserts
Custom sights are available, such as the one to the left. Height can be whatever is required, up to 1.250" from the bottom of the dovetail to the center line of the globe, and the cost is $175 plus shipping (see chart and allow two weeks as these are custom-made). This is just one example; tell me your needs.
I am also making custom inserts for other types of front sights including Distant Thunder, Baldwin, Pedersoli, MVA, Parts Unknown, Lyman 17A, Lee Shaver, Redfield and Tompkins.
I can make just about any size, shape or configuration of insert to meet your needs on a custom basis. Contact me for a quote.
