I've been thinking of trying one myself. I generally don't care for a peepsight mounted so far away from the eye - I like a very short eye-relief for them. But I'm open-minded enough to be willing to try it. Can't complain til I see whether it works or not.
I am in the process of designing and marketing a receiver mounted aperture sight for the SKS. The sight mounts on the rear of the receiver and does not require drilling and tapping. It adds 10" to the sighting radius. The sight will use apertures for the M16A1 family of rifles. The sight rezeros after removal. If you are interested you can contact me at [email protected] or [email protected].
Sounds very nice, glad to have another creative prototyper here. I'm tentatively interested and would love to know more about it. Though this site does not allow advertising for non-sponsors, it would be great to hear about your product and give input and try it out.
I put a Williams Firesight on my SKS Yugo M59/66. This easy-to-install kit includes both the fully adjustable (windage and elevation) rear peep sight and a red glowing fiber optic front sight. The peep sight installs where the rear ramp type sight is and actually replaces the standard sight. Try one and you'll like it. Visit the Willilams website to see more details. Try this site:
