Some questions for those of you experienced with these sights...I've been researching and thinking about various sight configurations for my rifle, my objective is to use this rifle as an elk/deer rifle in the deep, dark creek bottoms of the Oregon coast range. This means low light conditions and short shots. I'll have a need for quick sighting thus I've decided on the ghost ring type peep sight. Skinner offers a barrel mounted peep as well as the receiver mounted and Williams has the WGRS-336 receiver mounted peep that can either be fore or aft on the receiver. Has anyone experimented with these different setups? If so what is your opinion as to the fastest sight picture aquisition?
Also, Williams offers a fiber optic upgrade for the rear ghost ring, anyone have it? Do you think it's worth it? Does it effectively aid in gaining a faster sight picture?
My plan is to swap out the front sight for a fiber optic sight once I have my rear dialed in and know what I need.
Thanks in advance for your help!
I'm most happy with the Skinner. I have a Williams and it's plenty good, but the Skinner is more at home if you will. To my eye the Skinner just sits on my Marlins better. Really either will work, you might want to remove the aperture in low light situations. Steve.
