    So who is a forum smarty pants then?!

    I have acquired a New England Arms rear peep for the rail on my T3 , barrel is threaded for suppressor, am working on ideas for how I will make a removable front sight so I can switch from the scope (on quick release weavers) to the peep depending on the bush, not taken the last two "spook and shoot" opportunities as too close to determine aim point, having a colour in your scope doesn't count (4.5-14 loopy). I tend to be slower and more deliberate about taking shots than some.

    Quite like the idea of my 18" 6.5 T3 on open sights, so looking for clever ideas as to how to make what I want for the front end.

    How about a red dot sight. These are very fast pointing, and have no parrelax our magnification.

    You already have the rail set up, so easy solution.

    Or a reflex sight, I like the Leopold one with the delta, use the point of the triangle for precision work and the whole delta for snap shooting.

    Will the scope still hold a decent zero when you get to the tops and put it on for a long shot?

    I have another specialist scope also on quick release for the rifle and they both swap about and hold exact zero every time, so no problem there.

    Cut my teeth on a 303 back in the 70's, had a 300yd peep, worked well, might be a little nostalgia creeping in here

    There is a RRA flip up front sight that you could adapt to your barrel.
    Not sexy but fast and efficient and if there is enough space between your suppressor back end and your stock and it will fit, you will be able to keep the suppressor on and save your ears.

    I would remove the ugly sling attachments, noisy, useless and affecting barrel harmonics.
    And you can clamp a tacticool torch or laser below the sight! :-)

    Why take off the front sight? With a 4x you will not see it anyway I'd expect. (Too close to the scope to focus on) Or do you mean the rear sight?

    For the removable option, you will need very good rings as you will likely be wanting the scope for long shots which will be out with even the slightest of variance in alignment. It can be done but the only ones I have seen that were accurate enough for me were on scopes upwards of $4k on rifles designed for it (over $12k).

    I would actually suggest dropping back to a 1.5-6x scope and leave it on, or learn to get the most from peep sights at long range. Otherwise peep through rings would be an option, but not what I would do myself.

    In case anyone is interested the $12k + $4k combo was a Kreighoff Semprio with a Swarovski and a custom interchange mount for the swap barrel arrangemeent (223 / 300 win mag)

    Taking scopes on and off needs very expensive mounts in my experience.
    A small secondary red dot mounted above your main scope would be fine for bush hunting, could be done for under $300 buying in NZ , less than the cheapest reliable qr mount I have found.

    What about a laser mounted on the barrel with a pressure switch on the fore stock.
    There good to ten meters also shows if you have any obstructions in the way..
    Point and shoot.

    Would a 1x4 or a 1x6 power scope be a better solution?

    My 2cents is if you wish to have a front sight it will need to be on the barrel behind the suppressor, cant see it being accurate enough otherwise as point of aim will shift depending on how tight the suppressor is.
    I am guessing as you mount peep to a rail you will have enough height to mount the front sight high enough to clear the suppressor, just a matter of finding a high enough ramp and blade to suit, if not able to then apparently not too hard to extend a blade higher.

    Cheers
