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 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.
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
If you think a strong military is expensive, think about what a weak one would cost
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.
