Ballistol_1














I've been using and maintaining firearms virtually all of my life.  We have tried many different products in search of the "perfect" solution for cleaning, preserving, protecting and lubricating our guns.  Years ago a friend from Zimbabwe introduced me to BALLISTOL.  I'd tried the rest and finally found the BEST!

This product was developed by German Chemists for the German Army in 1904 as a "one product does all"  to protect, preserve, and clean  metal, wood, and even leather.  My field experience is that it does ALL of the above!

Read the true story here.  BALLISTOL - THE STORY

  Use this special oil to protect the finish of your Skinner Sights.

 Is hard to find.

This elegant tool is used to drift Skinner Dovetail Sights for
Windage Adjustment

Our punch has a special "FLAT" to glide along the bottom of the dovetail slot and give you a better puchase on the drifted sight. This is the same punch I have used for years and still use today in the Skinner Sight Shop

               "Safe Sided" Triangular File

File
One of our "Little Tricks"
We use in the SKINNER SIGHT Shop is what we call a "SAFE" sided file.

This is a standard 6 inch
triangular file  (60 deg) that has the teeth on one side ground off. Using this file allows you to file only on the "SLOPE" of the sight and not change the depth of cut.


   You can do this to your own file or buy one from us.
    We offer them here for our customers convenience.
                     (files can be hard to grind...)
