Anyone know where i can get these dovetail pieces?


I need to space up some sights on some rifles with 3/8" front dovetails. I need assorted heights. Anyone know where to get these? They are essentially male/female 3/8 dovetail risers. Not sure how to find them. I have tried all sorts of google searches to no avail.

Brownells? Midway?

It is a Williams Riser Block.
Item no 13053 is .25" wide and item no 13054 is .34" wide to suit the ramp and sight you are using. $7.95

Page 17 in their print catalog which can be downloaded at

Brownells used to carry them, maybe they still do.

AFAIK, the Williams spacer is only made in a single height/size, not in "an assortment".
IIRC, they raise a sight 1/4" (.250") - at least I'm pretty sure the one I had did.

If you have rifles that need higher sights, and the spacer block + your existing sight won't measure up, you're going to have to break down & buy the proper height replacement sights.
