Installed a peep sight today. Took at least 5 minutes!!!! It's 106 outside so won't get to shoot it today. But in the lowest position you sight right through the old open site as if you were using them. It's alot easier to sight on the target and with the original folded down shouldn't have to remove it. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a peep site. Of course, there are more expensive ones but this is a great place to start to see if you want to use peep sites or go to get something different.
How do you install a Williams 5D?
Did you blue locktite down the two screws that mount the sight to the receiver?
I found it helps. It also takes very little torque on the adjustment screws.
Have fun. I love mine. I also completely removed the factory sight. It's in a labeled ziplock bag in the garage incase I ever need it again.
Yep thats a good way to do it. I did it that way on my last install of a FP. BUT i forgot to on the one before last
Does this use the tapped holes on the left of the receiver, or scope holes on top?
I looked for instructions on the Williams website, but can find none...
Holes on top.

I put them on my 1895 CB and I like the accuracy, but I'm kinda squishy on the looks...yeah, "squishy"....where squishy means if I toss a coin I'm half inclined to put the originals back on...I will NOT be putting them on my 1894.
I'm accostomed to peeps from my M1A's and I get an easier-to-duplicate sight picture with the peeps back and closer to the eye.
Hey fellas, what is the nomenclature on an 1894 in .45 Colt?
My 1894C has the holes on the side. It was just a matter of removing the stock screws and installing the site with the new screws. I did however forget to locktite so will have to do that some day. Haven't decided if I'm going to remove the old site. If it doesn't get in the way will probably leave it alone.
