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...
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.
