Make shift peep
« on: March 17, 2024, 09:31:28 PM »

Was having trouble focusing on the front blade so decided to try a peep. I bought a marbles bulls eye sight removed most of the dovetail and drilled a hole through it. You’ll need a longer tang screw but looks like it should work fine. Thought about removing the outer ring but think I’ll leave it for now.

Assuming you have a blade front, just file it down to raise the POI.

I can't see everything from the picture, but is there anything besides the friction of the screw that keeps you from accidentally bumping the windage? It looks pretty flimsy to not get bent for elevation either. I hope I don't sound like a debbie downer, I just would hate for you to find out it didn't hold until its too late. Maybe there's something there I cant see in the picture.

This guy in the first reply has the best no-nonsense peep sight design I have seen. I would rather drill and tap to get an elevation adjustable peep myself, but the simple one would be perfect on a shotgun/fowler.

It’s just a bead. I filed it down some but couldn’t make enough of a difference to make it great
