I hope all the posters who think that the point of impact changes as the lever wears in, realize that the peep centered on the screw does not change the point of impact.

Recknagel makes a peep sight that fits in the rear claw scope base on a drilling or DR. I have one but haven’t installed it yet.

Vol423 could you share a little more info about this sight and where I could order one from. I have a drilling that this would be perfect for.
I checked NECG web page and do not see anything.
Thank you.
Mike

While not as compact as the lever mounted one, Skinner makes excellent peep sights that are adjustable for both windage and elevation. I had one installed on the solid rib of a single shot gun for use with turkeys. I hadn't shot a peep sight in close to 40 years and was amazed at the eye-brain coordination to automatically center the top of the front sight's post fiber optic with both eyes opened. Look for the front sight with both eyes open and it's dead centered. I had gotten away from leaf sights as my eyes aged and switched to red dots. With "ghost" rings, the fuzziness of the ring has a clear center that the eye automatically centers on the front sight's aiming point. With a rear leaf sight with notch, it became a guessing game as to where the fuzzy notch was. Gil

Aperture (peep) sights are a tool of the rifleman, a windfall to the older rifleman. In my 40s and 50s I competed with peep sights on rifles, and occasionally hunted with the same guns. I used a Merit adjustable diopter disc that threaded into my tang sight base. When deer hunting I would keep the Merit disc screwed into the base until the light got low, then I would screw it out and drop it into my pocket for the remaining minutes until legal shooting light was gone. I could do some very accurate shooting with the disc screwed out. AS Gil said, when you focus on the front sight the eye automatically centers it in the "ring". Doesn't matter what size that rear aperture is, up to a point. One quarter inch is plenty small for accurate shooting out to two hundred yards or so. Most ghost rings, for rifles, are no larger than that, IME.

This fold away peep sight is on a 12 bore shotgun marked "Emil Eckoldt Suhl" on the rib. It is fullly adjustable for elevation and windage. The barrel sight folds down too, yes this is on a smoothbore...

That is a very small aperture for a smoothbore. It could be shot just as accurately with a .250" aperture, and faster. Especially in low light.

Interesting.

Stanton, I agree, the aperture is very small, I have only shot it with the barrel sights and when I get it zeroed I will experiment with the peep sight. Sighting through it now it is very hard to pick out the target. I wonder why it was made this way and why it survived for so many years withouit being modified?

Probably because it was never used.
