    Alright, I want to build a 10/22. I already have a scoped 10/22 Charger, but want an open sighted rifle for this seasons varmint shoots. The factory Iron sights leave a lot to be desired on the stock 10/22. I've seen the Tech sights, and so forth, that mount to the top of the reciever. The only problem I have with those is asthetics. I dont mind the way they look, but dont like the fact that you either have to leave your old rear sight on, or remove it and have a open dovetail. Either way, that looks like crap to me. So, I guess What im trying to find, is a good set of adjustable iron sights that fit into the stock location, OR iron sights that will fit a bull barrel variation that didnt come with iron sights at all.
    Anyone want to help a picky shooter? :thumbup:

    Brownells sells dovetail plugs that fill in the slot.

    Mill a bull barrel for a front sight. 2x problems solved.

    Dont those mount to the reciever?

    Ive seen the plugs. Not a big fan of that either. Would rather put a sight there, or not have anything there at all.

    I Like that idea! Approx, what would a gunsmith charge for something like that?

    Williams makes a reciever sight, not a lot of elevation adjustment though. a shorty ramp base and hooded front will work for the front. Putting a "circle in a circle" and the target in the middle works amazingly well.

    Probably less than an hour of machine time. I would probably say $40 or less.

    Use fire sights on a stock barrel. They fit into the stock sight slots and the fiber optics make them 100% easier to see. I have them on all my 22's.
