Has anyone used one of these? Results?
I can't get decent accuracy with the "wide V" and front bead sight picture on my Grey Hawk, but I have excellent results from partridge style sights, and I use peep sights for highpower, so I'm of the mind that this sight might be a worthy option.
Unfortunately, there is a dire shortage of good rear sights for the round barreled, drilled and tapped T/C's.
I wish it had a good 3/8"'s rear sight notch....

I have not used teh T/C version, but I put a Lyman tang mounted sight on my GPR for a while - did my load work then sold the sight.

It worked great! I removed the screw in insert for hunting, just like on my Marlin 30-30.

Just didn't look as nice to have that blued 20th century sight on my browned GPR.

BTW, tang sights were on black powder rifles for centuries. The best of all were the Moorish guns that had multiple apertures for varying distances. Weren't they clever?

Doubling the sight radius of a normal T/C setup is also a bonus.
Has anyone used these? I've only looked through one of them. I'm mostly wondering if the adjustments are sufficient to warrant getting one to solve my problem shooting conicals in that rifle.
