I am in the market for a receiver mount peep sight and a front sight for my 336RC .35. I have looked at some online such as williams, and skinner. Which do you prefer and why?

Skinners have worked really well on all my 1895s
I recently went through the same search for the right peep sight. I went with the Skinner Elite. Easy to install, quick target acquisition, and looks sharp. Had to get a taller front sight and trim it to get it sighted in. Very handy for quick shots in the woods. Andy was very helpful and his website has detail instructions.

Do Skinners have both windage and elevation adjustments on the rear sight?
Yes they do. They are very sharp looking sights.

I have had (and used) Williams, A/O (now XS), Brockmans, and Skinner's...All are good sights, but only you can decide which one works best for you. I've chosen...Skinners for me!

I am going to ask you something different. What do you need a peep for? Hunting, target, silhouette or some combination thereof? Also how far distancewise do you shoot?
I have 2 Skinners and have nothing but great things to say about them (and Andy as well), but although they have windage and elevation
adjustments, when it comes to long distance and some silhouette stuff they are unidimensional (no distance adjustment).
