I have a M-77 MKII in .308, I want to leave it with just open sights. Unfortunatly I now find my self needing reading glasses, I can still see something 5mi. away but 1st. 3' is fuzzy. I'm looking for some type of Hi-viz/fiber optic type front with a peep-hole rear set up. Any suggestions would be apreeeesheated.
i got to try one out on a friends 77 rsi in 308 several years back. i reallly liked it and it was fast and easy. he left the front sight stock which was ok, but i think a plain post would be the cat's meow. More of a matter of tastes i guess as i never been a fan of them gold beads in the front sights.
I've been having a lot more trouble seeing My revolver sights in focus lately. But the small arp. peep sight, & hooded gold bead on the .222, seems to actually clear things up for Me, almost like putting on glasses or something.
I've been thinking, I'd like to try a ghost ring insert blade in the rear sight of the pistols, & see if it helps. I do have a Millett Red Dot on My 7 1/2" .45 LC right now, that I installed before last deer season, but really do not like scopes on a revolver ! It just kind of ruins the whole concept of carrying a revolver in the first place. A revolver should be kinda compact, & easy to carry & use.
Another thing I may investigate, is a small stick on for your eyeglasses, that has a small peepsight like hole, & is supposed to correct your vision for shooting. Has anyone seen or tried them ??
I don't know about all of them John, but mine has a little button you push down & the sight slides out. I could live with the rear sight but the front is tiny & only has tiny brass insert that is useless as far as I'm concerned.
receiver peep is the way to go , 1000 yd shoots use them and I shoot target 200 yds
with mine . Most people make the holes way to small , the hole is like a camera you adj
it to get a sharp pic , what size you and me will be different
the r/side is $150 and 4 sale , l /side is a $500 sight and NOT 4 sale
