I'm seriously considering putting a peep on my flinter. I had also thought about putting a globe on the front as I'm doing this. I then read somewhere that the front globe is awe full in low light, so I nixed that. How about the peep? Ok in low light? I would probably replace the front to fiber optic as well with the back to peep. Thoughts?
I made a peep sight that is brazed to the top of the tang bolt and opened up the aperture to almost ghost ring size. No hood on the bead front sight. The long sight radius that results makes this set-up super accurate. I think I'll be satisfied with this set-up for as long as the old eyes will work with it.
My sons and I have a T/C Renegade and two Lyman Great Plains Rifles with them and we love them. In low light situations, if we feel it necessary, we remove the screw in insert which really kind of makes it a ghost ring. I agree with Windsniffer, I think there is something to helping to block out the flash.
Also .50 power reading glasses for folks over 60 works well for me.I buy them in amber also with big lense..I called the company that makes those clip on reading glasses that go on your hat they said they cannot make them below 1.0 that is no good they will be blurry at 50 yards but a .50 is not blurry..
