    I don't like the stock peep sight. I want a rear sight to get rapid target acquisition. Any info on other sights would be appreciated. Thanks

    I use mine as a backup sight. I use a scout scope from leupold; it is fast to acquire and shoot the nuts off a dead fly accurate;)

    I'd be interested in what you find and how much of an improvement it is from the stock sights.

    I'm not getting any other options for a rear sight. I may have to try a scout scope. I will post results after testing. Thanks

    Have you looked at the full length rail from XS? It uses their ghost ring rear since in replaces the factory rear sight. I have had good luck with that aperture on some of the rifles I've built.
