M-77 MKII Sights?

2129 Views 12 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  tx gun runner
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.

Thanks Deadeye!

If you want a quality site set, call Williams Gun Site, Inc. at 1-800-530-9028. They will be able to set you up with a good set.
this is a good rear sight. ... m~maindeal

fits into the intregal scope base on rugers. Steel, and highly functional.
I've never seen those before. That's a good link deputy.
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'm thinking throw a fiber optic pipe in for a front site, and let that baby shine. That would be the ticket for me. Now, if only I could shoot iron sites still, I'd be all set.
i like irons, especially as a back-up. Right now i think i need to splurge on a leupold 4x, just can't decide to do 'er this season or next.......but its a luxery as the bushnell is holding up fine.

peep sights do make life much easier over std sights.....until you loose the light. That fiber-optic front ought to do the trick though to cure that.
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've see folks comment on this style else where for handguns.

and these for glasses---never tried it

The rear peeps on both sites look cool, but can't seem to find fiber optic front that will just slide in. Seems like someone would make one.
They don't use a standard dovetail on the front?

I thought that was a stanard size insert?
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
