    Does anyone recommend any brand or model of peep sight for use with the Ruger 10/22??

    Tech Sights

    I second the Tech Sights.

    I put them on a stainless synthetic stocked 10/22 that I bought used and it makes a great difference.

    It moves the rear sight way back on the reciever and opens up the sight radius.

    Easy to install and easy to use.

    And not expensive.

    I had a Williams peep with firesight front (WGRS-RU22FS) on my 10-22. I really liked it for plinking. I now have a Williams Ace in the Hole peep with the firesight front. Now I can pop a scope on it whenever I want and still have the peep for plinking.:)

    Those Tech-Sights look interesting. Two questions.

    1. Would they work with the factory front sights?

    2. For the front sight adjustment, would it use the exact same tool as the A2 sights on an AR-15?

    No, they do not work with factory front sights, as it raises the sight plane.

    It uses the AR sight adjustment tool, but I do not remember if it is the A1 or A2 tool. The rear uses the same style as the A1.

    That’s what I figured, and would probably see that when I had the Tech-Sights in hand.

    Their site does not say anything about the front sight tool. It shows the tool on their sight for adjusting the front sight (SRT100), but no mention whether it’s the A1 5 prong tool or the A2 4 prong tool which I already have for my AR. Price of the tool is cheap, so if I buy the sights and need to order the tool, I’d like to do it all at the same time.

    For what it’s worth, and for those following this thread, I emailed Tech-Sights over the weekend, and woke up this morning (Monday) and got the answer. Here it is. Their front sights requires the A1 front sight adjustment tool. I may just go ahead and order these sights. The stock sights on my 10/22 are hard to see sometimes and these sights would increase the sight radius considerably.

    My Email:
    I'm considering your TSR100 sights for my Ruger 10/22. I've searched your site extensively, and I'm just not sure which tool is needed for adjusting the front sight. The 4 prong A2 tool, which I already have for my AR-15, or the A1 5 prong tool. Which tool is used for adjusting the front sight?

    Their Answer:
    Our sights require the 5 prong tool for adjusting the front sight. However if you were to swap the post out for any standard AR post that uses the 4 prong tool, then you could use the tool you already have. We only sell the 5 prong tool called the TS155. Thank you for your interest in our sights.

    Check out Skinner sights. I just put a barrel mount peep on my marlin 1894 .357, I didnt have to change the front sight, and its just as accurate as when I had a 4x scope on it, which I had to take off because it looked "wrong". Pretty economical too, and very well made.

    I build LTRs Liberty Training Rifles) for use at Appleseed Project shoots. I install the TSR-100. I have used the TSR-200 but I don't change setting that often enough to find them a necessity. IMHO, they are a great setup.

    I just ordered the TSR100 sights and the front sight adjustment tool. Hopefully have them by the end of the week or early next week. Will post up some photos and do a range report. Thinking about doing an installation video too.

    I put a couple hundred rounds thru my 10/22 today. Shooting at paper at 50 yards was very difficult. Hoping the TSR100 sights will help improve that, not that I spend a lot of time shooting paper with the 10/22. Shooting at a 10-inch steel plate at 50 yards free standing, I only missed it 3 times in 50 rounds. I’m ok with that. :)

    Williams has made some nice receiver sights for the 10/22's for decades. Maybe not the latest high-tech , must have tactical-zombie killing green sights on the market but a darn good sight , totally adjustable and comes with a matching front sight of the correct, fiber-optic or gold bead, easy to install and the set only costs about $40.00 .
