    WTB Sako Peep sight

    Hi Folks

    As above, does anyone have a genuine Sako Peep sight for sale.

    They have a 100m and 200m marking on the aperture ring and are designed to fit tapered dovetail

    I have decided to set up my 243 with peep and foresight to give myself more of a challenge bush hunting fallow...couldn't bring my self to go the bow hunting rout...not that much of a masochist...haha

    Let me know if you have got one lying around, can purchase new from Aus so will be able to source if not

    Cheers

    Like these? Have to squint to see them.



    Wish you luck in the kindest way but don't like your chances. They were never that common. Still got mine - sorry NFS. Took it with me to SI a couple of times in case I totalled a scope.

    Hi Zimmer

    Yep just like the ones pictured. Will cost me more to but the rear sight than the sticker price in the advertisement!

    I have actually sourced some new, or at least unused from a dealer in Australia, thought I would ask here on the forum in case someone had a set


    Cheers

    Tapered dovetails and Williams don't have one that will fit.

    As far as I can tell from Uncle Google the only ones that will fit without modification are Sakos

    Cheers

    Have a look at the skinner sights page they might have something that will do the job at a more sensible price.

    What @Barefoot said.. Just get ones that attach with little screws and get the receiver drilled and taped to suit. Or is this the case of a 10lb swannie, sugar sack and bullies? @kiwijames

    I would prefer the Sako ones, partly due to owning a 10lb swannie, sugar sack, no bullers though!

    The Sako ones have windage and elevation adjustments so should be easy enough to set up

    As stated I can get a set from Aus, just wondering if I can get some Kiwi ones before giving money to Australia

    Cheers
