MK,

Sounds a nice drilling. You'll find JJP's top lever peep is very affordable. Sure don't see any need to regulate those barrels, least of all if you are using factory ammo.

He'll make a new screw with the peep attached. Be sure to save the original screw should you eventually sell the arm.

Regards, Tim

Tim, does your JJP/Purdey style peep fold down? Does it adjust for windage or elevation?

MK,

Yes, the peep folds down to keep it out of the way when in a vehicle, or even when carrying it in the field.

Unlike the Hoenig version, it does not adjust for either windage or elevation. I wondered about that and concluded that it is set for the height of the backsight and the windage of the backsight at which the regulated barrels print accurately, so no need to move the peep...

Regards, Tim

Tim, when you get a chance, could you possibly post a close-up photo of the peep blade? Maybe from several angles? Im curious as to how JJ will "tap" the blade to adjust windage. George's sight adjusts for windage with two tiny screws but depends upon filing down a replacement front blade for elevation.

Have a great hunt,

C.

Regret that I've been in Afghanistan for about a week on what looks to be four or five months more. Am able to visit the Board irregularly.

In any case, am far from the .303. The double is still back with JJ to raise and make a slightly larger front sight and adjust the back sight for windage.

I'm guessing (!) that the backsight will need so little adjustment to get two inches left at 100 that the peep will not need to be moved. Expect JJ will let me know at some point.

No winter hunt in RSA/Namibia this year. I'll be lucky to get there in October...

Regards, Tim

Some down time here on Friday, the Muslim weekend. To my delight found I still had some double rifle photos on my digital camera. Here are two close ups of the top lever peep. The second photo is the peep folded flat.

Regards, Tim

Thanks so much, Tim. That's better detail, looks like a very nice compact sight.

Im still working on the sidelock drilling you found. Made a new forend, wood, and extractor and now need to re-blue the barrels and finish- up the whole thing. It's a nito-proofed 9.3x72R and I'm very interested in seeing how well it will do vs. my black powder version.

Perhaps you'll be able to try for an Ibex with an M-14 in a few months? ;>) I'd be looking for chukar and sand grouse come fall.

Again, stay safe,

C.
