Default Rear sight for Ruger Scout rifle

I have the stock peep sight and would like a rear sight that would give faster target acquisition. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks

I think XS Sights makes some larger peeps. Or you could add a red dot or scout scope forward mounted.

Can you enlarge the opening in the rear sight or could it be drilled and tapped for the screw in eye pieces? The eye pieces could be left out for faster acquisition. Another path would be to change the front sight to a fiber optic if possible.
