    Default Tech Sights

    Hey all,

    I'm look into tech sights for my ruger american rimfire! I have it in .17hmr, and want to be able to accurately reach out a little further than with stock irons, but don't want a scope! Are tech sights as awesome as the price is? They seem a little steep, but apparently have great reviews. Are there other options I should be considering? Are the tech sights worth it? What can I expect from them?

    Thanks for all your help,
    Chris

    They are very well received by the Appleseed shooting organization, which says a lot to me about their irons. I'd give them a look for sure.

    Hi Chris
    I put a set of tech sight on my Marlin model 60. Absolutely great! The adjustments are crisp and the point of impact moves like it should. Get the tool
    they sell to adjust them also, You don't need it but it makes it easier. The only issue I had is that the sight slid off the back of the dovetail the first time out. After that I kept a quarter on the bench and checked the screw every 20 or 30 shots till it stopped moving. That has been a couple of years and
    4 or 5 bricks of ammo and it hasn't moved since. The sight picture is the same as my M1-A so it makes for great fun cheap.

    I have a pair of peeps for my Ruger 10/22, similar to the old M16 sights I was familiar with. I do not regret getting the sights, despite their apparent expense, and like them a lot. You get what you pay for, so you will probably be happy with the quality you're getting. (I also have a collapsible stock for it, a Blackhawk Axxiom.)

    In my case, though, I keep waffling back and forth between the peeps and a scope. I hated the original 10/22 sights and added the peeps, but with my eyes being as old as they are, I couldn't see a squirrel head at 35 yards to hit it... So I put an old deer scope on it. Worked great if the squirrel was exactly at 35 yards, but the parallax killed me and I'd often overshoot. So I went back to the peeps for awhile, but got frustrated not being able to hit a squirrel head at distance. So I bought a dedicated rimfire scope (4x) which I love... but the whole thing weighs about twice as much as it did without the scope, and I think I'm going to revert back to the peep sights now that squirrel season is almost over. Best of both worlds, I guess. Scope for the season, peeps the rest of the time. They both mount on the same rail.

    I bought a pair for my 10/22. I wish I knew would have bought them sooner. They are great sights.

    Excellent sights. I have them on a 10/22 and a SKS. It would be hard to find any better at almost any price.

    I put a set on my Marlin 795 a couple years ago with loctite and have not had a problem. I like them.
