    Lyman peep sight for muzzle loader

    Im looking to find a peep sight to fit onto a standard Lyman sight base like this

    The fiber optic sight on it is a bit coarse and also a bit of a blur for my over 50 eyes.

    Alternately I would fit a simple peep back further on the barrel and remove the other base completely.
    Its only for hunting so don't want a multi adjust target type.

    It's a .50 cal Lyman Deerstalker.
    Im looking for a bit of a challenge for spring and summer hunting.
    The local hares will be in a bit of trouble when I get this sorted.
    Then I will move on to bigger things.

    Cheers to anyone who is able to help or advise.

    Cant help with the sight but I like your thinking. Dont forget to try a shot charge at those hares as well. I have a 58 that gets a shot load for rabbits now and then with good success. Ive also tried for ducks but never got one, but have shot a starling.

    The existing sights at ok to get started.
    But ultimately I want to be able to hit and cleanly kill deer at 100m so need something a little better.
    None of the Lyman options suit as it's a left handed percussion lock.
    So the tang sights which are usually on the left get mixed up with the hammer or at least very close.

    I need to get a few bits and pieces in hand to be able to shoot it now.

    Have a look at Track of the Wolf or Dixie Gunworks. Both good to deal with and cheap freighting.

    Will do that.
    I looked at some AR back up sights today in chch.
    Quite like the flip over peep apertures in 2 different sizes.
    Ultimately something like that that is severely modified could be very versatile.
    Added benefit of good windage and elevation controls with those awesome flip over peeps

    what about one off a slr.not sure if there would be enough adjustment but they did a good enough job for what they are.
