The sight is dovetailed. To a trained eye it is blatantly obvious. Based solely on your apprehension you should bring it to a gunsmith.
When in doubt, contract it out.
I'll second that. Ive gotten over my head a time or two and was lucky enough to have a gunsmith near by. With the proper tools & training, itis amazing what they can do.

There is a learning curve to many things. Take a tip from the Oracle @ Delphi - "Know Thyself"

If your over 30, you should know your limitations by now.
If your a teenager - just get a bigger hammer

I think you might be looking for the dovetail in the wrong angle. When they speak of a dovetail on a firearm...you look at the side of the sight...the sight blade is attached to the base (usually the same piece of metal just milled away) which is angled, fatter at the bottom thinner at the top. The barrel has a complimentary slot milled out of it. Those of us who know what to look for are so sure (thanks to your pics) because we can see the angles i described.

Also, don't be sorry for asking questions. We were all noobs once. That's how we got to where we are!

Thanks for the comment. I dunno I guessed I was experienced enough in a firearm I could tell a dove tail seam when I saw one. the sides of the sights look like one piece solid metal to me. Ya learn something new everyday.

Here she is wearing her newly fitted wideview scope rings ( can't shoot her yet though cause one of the base screw allan key screw heads wasn't machined and doesn't have the allan key receptacle . But I called the company and they said they will send a screw out ) And a tasco world class 3-9x50 scope. Only problem is I never considered the lens dia because I thought the rings would be high enough to clear the irons. And I guess they do , barely. I have like a 3mm sight picture on the irons because of the lens dia hahahah . Only thing I don't like is the eye relief on the scope isn't all that great . So I just moved the scope back a bit more than I would have liked and its ok now.

I might just sell the scope and put the $$ towards a 3-9x38 or something similar.

Looks good though aye? I know a lot of purists will think I ruined the guns asthetics and to a point I agree but I really dig the rings so I think it looks pretty trick .

Ok , I may ditch the scope altogether. I apologize to all . looking at the front sight from the top you can clearly see the dove tail lip coming up over the sight by the way.

So I'm thinking williams fool proof peep sight and williams front fire site combo might be more what I need

My neck hurts just looking at it. I guess you would call me a purist but I love my peep sight and front sight. I had a red front sight but it didn't show up in low light so I went to white and a little lower. (guess I didn't measure well)

The one thing I did wrong was I listened to my gunsmith and went w the cheaper peep sight. I have to loosen screws, move the sight and then tighten them. His point was you only have to do this once, 30-30s don't move a lot.

I w rather just move a adj dial for windage n elevation. I like to hear the clicks. The new fire sights look great but I prefer green when it comes to fiber optics.

IMHO - peep sights are faster on target. As I get older, the Deer seem to be getting faster except the ones who walk around in my yard as if they own it.

Right right. Im going with the fool proof williams peep. But so far I can only find red for the front sight . it comes as a set . from midway for 71 bucks

That being said the scope is fairly comfortable. The eye relief sucks but thats just the scope.
