I have a lot of PCC's. ALL of them use these sights. Couple factory, several that came with no sights I put folding BUIS on that are Peep. My eyes don't work well with irons any more, at the range it's real bad. Something about the lighting in there makes it really hard for me. Peeps are the far and away the best for me. With them I can at least still keep on paper :D

I’ve got a Skinner still. Old Lyman and Marbles a good on Vintage Levers which is what I liked till 8EDAC63B-536A-4CCC-851F-D1020F02433E.jpeg started shooting BPCR. The soule sights are a real necessity shooting long distance and dealing with wind. Can’t believe I spend as much on a good Montana Vintage Arms Soule sight as I used to spend on a good Marlin 336-A! I use their Verneer sights (without the Soule Windage adjustment barrel at the base) for my 1893s and 1894. But those too get used for long range - just not keeping score with the ‘fun gong shooting’.

Here are my three Feinwerkbau air rifles. The two oldest I bought just before getting out of the Corps in '78. (Semper Fi!) The newest (FWB Sport) I bought last year and actually took off the peep sight because the iron sights were sufficient for my shooting. I target shoot, offhand, inside my house from one end to the other which stretches out to 15 m or almost 16.4 yards. The FWB 127 has the same peep sight I put on it in the late '70s. The FWB 124 originally came with a Tasco scope that I replaced with another set of Williams peeps.

Not robust enough and the aperture is too small for anything else.
You may be surprised with the unassuming ruggedness of many peeps. I'm not a peep sight X spurt, but many I have encountered over the years have the ability to increase or decrease the peep hole by swapping out a disk or threaded insert. (Not that finding them will be easy if older ones). you may want to see if your aperture can be changed. Mine is quite large, slightly more than 1/8" so is excellent for general hunting and fast visual acquisition of target with large field of view. I'm good to 100 yards or so, to be well within the vital zones while others I know can reach out better than that with it.
Personally I couldn't see the rack in the big ears of a forked horn mulie without a scope past 100 yards anyway.

Given this is supposed to be representative of a 200 year old original, swapping apertures, etc. really isn’t an option and no I’m not drilling it larger.
