IF using it for hunting though and do not want the hassle of modifying or replacing the stock, I would scope it.
On looking at it, what size hole in the rear peep? You might try a larger hole aperture and see how that works. BUT if bore sighted and it is on as is, might not work. There is one other option, cutting the front sight base down some then recutting the dove tail BUT that will take a bit of work?
Seriously though, I have been looking for a nice swede set up like yours! You stole it IMHO and if you run across another for sale, drop me a line.
Thanks--I think I'll go ahead and modify the stock. I'm 58 and learned to shoot with iron sights and didn't have a scoped gun until 20 years ago or so. Peep sights allow me to forgo the scope. I picked this one up at a pawn shop where they were asking $229 for it. It was filthy but looked fine otherwise. If I do come across another, I'll let you know. There is another pawn shop in my area that has a dozen or so 96 rifles that have been professionally restocked in black composite with scope mounts. Asking price is $290.
