Interesting that I have a rifle with an enclosed front sight but the rear is a military style peep sight so it's less of an issue.
I think it'd be really cool to get a peep sight. Only time I've ever used one was on Daisy air rifles when I was in air cadets. From 10m I could get a group the size of a penny using them. I was also hoping to use then on the C7 during basic training, but turns out we only used the C79 optics.

I have a Marlin .30-30 as well - and it's a great brush gun, but my Henry Big Boy .44 MAG is a dream. No kick, smooth trigger and reliable action.

I'm actually thinking about picking up something in a pistol caliber. Right now it's looking like it might be the mares leg. I'm just not sure if I'd really enjoy something with such short range since to me it'd be about 100 yard maximum on anything bigger then a gopher.

Grandma and I purchased a Henry for the grandson. of course his dad and and grandpa had to give it a try. Purchased "used" it was in great shape, accurate too. I was pleased with how smooth the action was.
Before we shot it, I cleaned the barrrel and after we shot I stripped it down. I am amazed at how crude the inside appears and yet it is so smooth.
The grandson is still shooting it, after three years he still loves his Henry. He's getting so he can hit the 2" square "swing targets" at 40 yds off hand quite often. Square peg- square hole and made in the USA.

If you are an NRA instructor, Henry will sell to you at a discount. Comes out to better than Wal-Mart price.

I own two Henry rifles. Nice solid guns. Thank goodness something is still made in the USA. Not much left that is.

I love my Henry .45 long Colt! very accurate! Just can't beat a lever action rifle. I suppose I am just an 'old style' type of shooter though.
