Default peep sight on win.94

am going to order a lyman #66 receiver peep sight for a win 94 30-30 and was wondering if anybody uses one of these and had to replace the front site with a taller front bead or was the stock height good alreadt...hate to buy just the peep and later on find out i have to get a taller front bead cause the gun keeps shooting high and i run out of downward adjustment..thanks to all who replys...

I did it on my Marlin 30/30 w red insert front. Had to change to a lower front - went w white this time & it helps in low light.

Hope you get it right the first time.

It was extremely frustrating not being able to get it sighted in the first time ! 30/30 is not a hard kicking round but off the bench it gets old fast...

My real lesson learned is to spend the extra $$ on better peep sights. I bought the cheaper - loosen set screws, make adj., then retighten. I wouldn't make that mistake twice.

Then again, you should never say never.

I love the Lyman 66 peep on my Winchester 94 and Marlin1895.

Tried a scope on the 1895, but at .45-70 ranges, I like the peep better.

did you have to change the front bead on the win 94 to a different height or anything?? or did the stock bead work for you??

I installed a Williams peep on a 94, no taller front side needed.

Measure from the center of the bore to the top of the front sight then open the bolt and measure from the center of the bolt/bore to the center of the peep at the lowest setting. If the front measurement is the same as or more than the rear measurement, you dont need a higher sight. You are checking if the sights are parallel to the bore.
