Re: Peep Sight Advice Needed
whoa on that FW!
yes closer is better but watch for recoil and over sight ( which is too close to get the fore sight centred ..)
if you can get the opter ( the part with the actual peepsight) out or remove the sight totally , try this
get something like a gun rest some cusions lead sled etc to hold your rifle to where you can see a distance , say 20 feet or better ( 50 yards is great )
position your sight allong the side of the rifle while you hold it like your shooting
now slid the sight along til you get a not too big , but clear sight picture , good clean foresight ,and clear circle ( rear peep sight) to centre it in ... , mark that and mount there
that way the sight suits YOU 3-5 " suits most folks
good luck eh
how big is the opter hole ?
if you dont have a clean view of the foresight the hole maybe small for your eye
if the hole is too small you may wish to try drilling out the hole to the next size up
save you remounting ..
