Re: info/reviews on peeps.

i've met some great peeps here...most of the peeps around here are straight shooters and won't steer you wrong. Matter of fact, I've only met one peep i would not shoot with...

oh wait...you mean peep SIGHTS? got a particular model you are looking at? Link us perhaps?

Re: info/reviews on peeps.

I Like the Lyman #48 peep. I have them on remingtons and Marlins great sight. they come in target with knobs and hunter style with coin slots. Get a threaded sight; not a friction lock like the Williams 5d (strictly junk).

Don't know your rifle BUT the Lyman tang sights are good (got 2 of them) but no windage.

Re: info/reviews on peeps.

For a Marlin, go with Skinner sights or XS sights.

I run an Aimpoint on my marlin 45-70, which is quicker and more accurate for me that just the ghost rings.

When it rains or snows and I can't see out of the Aimpoint, I throw the QD lever and run my skinner sights.

I have a Williams FP on my Marlin 336 and I really like it. I would recommend it to anyone. They make them for the 7600 if that is what you want it for.

All the ones mentioned are good. I have both Williams and Lyman on rifles now and I just ordered a Skinner for a 336.

Re: info/reviews on peeps.

I own and have used most modern versions of peep sights. XS Sight systems, Lyman, Marbles, Williams.

I have the XS on my Marlin and really like it, a Williams 5D on the Winchester 94 carbine, Lyman tang sights on the 1894 rifle and some 1892 Winchesters, a Marbles adjustable tang sight on 74 Sharps repo.

I like shooting a good tang/peep sight better, but rifles with tang sights are harder to carry and slightly slower to shoot if you have the tang in the down position. I do agree, that a good peep like the Williams, is just about perfect for heavy cover hunts. There is alot of hunters I spend time with that shoot peep sights on their Winchesters, Marlins, and Rem. 7600's
