Peep sight on 7600

What’s a good peep sight for a fast shooting bear gun ?

Peep sights are not conducive to fast shooting.

I like Williams peeps.

You might want to replace the regular aperture with the Twilight Aperture.

A lower power scope would be faster.

We'll have to disagree on this one WW.


If the gun fits you, and you practice, you can acquire the target instantaneously and the front bead will automatically center in the aperture. Just swing the bead on/with the target and shoot.

I'd say just as fast. Same thing for both the peep and scope, if the gun fits you and you practice, the sight picture is acquired instantaneously.

The (perceived) difference is on followup shots. I say perceived because it "feels" quicker to reacquire a target coming out of recoil with the iron sight. In fact, there is no difference, similar to guys thinking they shake more on a higher power, when they are in fact shaking the same but the higher magnification, duh, magnifies it.

We will have to agree to disagree. Looking through a tiny pin hole more than likely with one eye closed you loose a lot of peripheral vision. Open sights are faster acquisition than peep sights and better to swung on moving targets.

I had a 03 Springfield with peep sight years ago. It was fast, accurate, and never got wet or fogged. There are times I miss having that gun.

Red Dot or Halo sight would work well on a bear gun at close distance,, about 75 yards or less. Google Red Dot or Halo sight.
