are newly designed and developed replacement larger front beads for your
Marbles or Williams front rifle sight and shotgun beads.
As has been the motivation for many of SliX-Prings*
products the request for larger front beads came from numerous customers
and shooters. This interest
was further expressed by many participants at the 2014 SASS Convention
held in San Antonio, Texas. Numerous fellow shooters approached us after
we had been presented the “Wooley” award and expressed a desire to see
if our innovation could result in larger beads.
relationship with one of our manufacturers allowed us to accelerate the
production and they are now available in three different sizes for
rifles and two sizes for shotgun.
The different rifle beads are pictured above.
The contrast should be evident between the
standard Marbles 3/32”bead and the progressively larger SliX-Bead
that measure .150”, .175”and .190”, from left to right.
The .150”bead was designed to replace the popular “Grabber” bead
previously provided by Manatee.
The additional sizes were selected after a simple field survey of older
shooters and a check to see what was more visible.
Thus the sizes selected.
The same survey suggested that the same sizes would
apply for shotgun beads.
Since the .175” bead is already available from other sources, we
are only producing two larger
sizes. The beads, which are threaded to a standard 6-48 pitch, are
.190”and .220”in diameter and easily seen even through dense smoke.
As you can see in the picture above, the rifle
beads are made with a stem that will press into the Marbles or Williams
larger sight base after carefully removing the original.
In most cases the SliX-Bead
will press right into the hole from which the original we taken.
Some may require some assistance with reaming or drilling the
crimp that held the stem solid.
The shotgun beads are threaded to 6-48 which seems to be the
standard bead thread for most replacements.
The manufacturers want to clearly point out that if
you have little or no idea how these beads are supposed to fit and work,
get help or find someone who does know how to install them.
Due to all the variations in machining tolerances and variations
in the crimp on rifle sights and different thread pitch for shotgun
beads some sensitive work may be required.
