10/22 Sight recomendations
Okay, I’ve been shooting with the 10/22 Takedown and I find the stock front blade simultaneously too small to see, AND it covers my view of the target. I haven’t figured out how it does that but it does.
The 10/22 is for quick off-hand target acquisition rather than for one hole bench rest groups. Indoors we have a 50’ range, which I’ll be using though the winter, and outside there’s a 100y range (70y zero?) so that’s the zero range the sight would have to accommodate. The 10/22 seems to ’pull’ to the right just a touch, so some windage would be good.
I’m looking for a circle within a circle sight type of picture. I did put a ‘ghost ring’ blade replacement on the barrel’s rear sight and I like it, but I think I’d like the longer sight radius of receiver mounted rear sight.
If MoJo made a ‘SnapShot’ for the 10/22 I’d get that, but they don’t. So I’m thinking a front globe and rear peep. I also found the stock 10/22 sights a bit low and would like something higher. The target ‘Fool Proof’ rear sights seem like overkill. I was thinking the ‘Ace i/t Hole’ or the WGRS-RU22, but I’m afraid they’re just as low as the stock, it’s hard to tell from the photos, and I don’t know which size ‘riser’ for the globe would work best with which rear peep.
Tech Sights were considered despite being a bit clunky looking, but I couldn’t find a front post with a hole in it. Do they exist? I discovered some people take the fiber optic out of a FireSight to get the hole.
Williams doesn’t do email and MidwayUSA said, “Too many options, go see a gunsmith.”
All extremists should be taken out and shot.
