I picked up my 10/22 TD on Friday & played with it late Friday night.
The stock sights may be good for someone, I guess, but not for me. It has a tiny brass button on the blade that doesn’t look like anything unless the firing line lights are on as well as the target lights, and even then it’s not very apparent over a black bull.
So I spent some time Saturday wandering around the web and it seems the Tech Sights and the Williams sights are the favored options, unless you want to get really surgical, in which case I don’t think you’d be putting them on a stock 10/22 anyway.
I really like the idea of the Williams FireSight peep sights with the front fiber optic dot that ‘lights up’ and is easy to see. If you remove the aperture, you have a basic ghost ring too. ‘Brandon 401401’ uses it that way but I don’t think he even needs sights. I think he just pretends to use them so we don’t feel bad. I have heard the fiber optic dot covers small targets at the further distances.
The Tech Sight is also very popular. I’m thinking the 100. I don’t think you can get fiber optic post for it, but it has a thinner post, I think, I’m not sure.
Maybe you use a 6 o'clock hold for all targets and it doesn't matter?
The rifle was bought to practice with standing off hand and other position shots, without optics, up to about 100y. We have an indoor range that’s 50’, and the club has a sportier rifle match that runs through the winter (Which I haven’t been to yet.) so I’ll probably be using it indoors during the cold, as well as on multiple targets at different distances on the outdoor range on the nicer days.
So, anybody have experience with both sights? Not too many on the forums have. Which would you think would be most appropriate, given my use? Why?
Also; Does anybody have experience with ‘Walking Targets’? I mean the metal ones for 22lr, not the zombies. How do you like them?
