Making a peep sight
« on: October 15, 2020, 06:23:20 pm »
I can't see sights anymore so I tried copying a peep made and sold by Lowell Harrier, I thought it would be a piece of cake, not so.

Here is Lowell's;



My first one was too far from my eye.



My second one was too sloppy;



My third one came out OK after hours of trying to bend everything so my sights would be perfectly lined up when I shouldered the gun and looked through the peep. Of course I will file a nice round finial around the aperture, round and slick the whole thing up then brown it. My sights are fairly clear when I look through the peep.

Looks good to me!  I seem to have that same sight problem, as in seeing the darn things!

This one actually works, it is the one posted above with all the extra metal, I still have some filing, sanding and rust browning to do.
