Barrel mounted peep sight

I'm planning on ordering the barrel mounted peep sight for my Marlin 795. I was wondering what aperture size do you recommend? Should I get the .125 or.155? Thanks.

IIRC, the default that comes is a .090'. If I am correct, that one is good for hunting in normal light. Can remove it for a .200" ghost ring (again, IIRC). If you want to shoot target/precision, then I think Andy has a .040" peep. Double check me on all these measurements, as I am doing this from memory.
Hello Hongster,

I usually ship with the .096" aperture (because we always have) but I can tell you on my own I use the .155 out on the barrel. For the standard receiver mounted sights I do prefer the .096" for an all around choice.

Thanks OscarFlyTyer for the input! Correct, .200" with the aperture removed. (Which works great with the barrel mount)

Hope that helps,

Hey Hongster, I did a review of this sight that you can read here if you're interested:,78733.0.html

It is a great little sight. I generally do like Oscar said and alternate between either the standard aperture or just remove it and use a ghost ring.
