Finally, a valid replacement front sight for the Little Badger
On a firearm, the presence of well-designed open sights is an imperative. Even more so on a utility model like the .22 LR Little Badger rifle. We therefore offer this steel front sight for Chiappa Little Badger, in order to replace the standard mounted one at the end of the barrel.
Because indeed out of the box, the original front sight is plastic. It is understandable that Chiappa wanted to reduce the cost of its foldable rifle. But for a survival weapon, it’s not a very wise move. Because when a gun is destined to face particularly harsh conditions of use, losing the use of it’s iron sights is a disaster. A fall, a shock, and the plastic front sight bents, breaks, rmaking the weapon useless at more than a few yards away.
With our steel front sight, you’ll get an extra guarantee in critical situations. It will save you from having to keep spare plastic ones in your pocket, in case things go wrong. This is to us THE important custom part, the first thing to change on your Chiappa single-shot rifle.
Compatibility and installation of the steel front sight for Chiappa Little Badger
This little badger spare is compatible with all variants of the rifle that have an original front sight. This includes the Chiappa Little Badger skeleton stock (considered the standard model) in .22 LR, .17 HMR or .22 WMR, but also the Little Badger Deluxe with wooden stock and hand guard.
However, this metal front sight cannot be installed on the new Little Badger “with scope” that come with an optic. It will also not be suitable for the Little Badger in 9 mm Flobert that can be found in France.
Installing this custom accessory is very easy. Just get rid of the original sight by punching it out of the barrel. Then put on the steel front sight instead. To do this, its internal diameter is 13.5 mm (0.53″). Once the new front sight is in place, you just need to secure it with the screw provided. You’re ready. This accessory is designed to work perfectly with the original peep sight.
Beware, on the latest Little Badger produced by Chiappa, the screw holding the original front sight is drowned in a powerful threadlocker. The easiest way to get rid of it is to use a heat gun to heat it all up. Because the original front sight is made of plastic, it is often destroyed in the operation. But since our steel front sight can then stay permanently on the rifle, that’s not really a problem.
