Peep Sight for T/C Omega


PDA

I'm thinking about switching out the factory open sights on my T/C Omega with a T/C or Williams peep sight. I use my Omega only for deer hunting and have had some issues with the factory sights obscuring too much of the target. Not really looking to upgrade to a scope because I want to keep muzzleloading more challenging than rifle hunting. I might have to go the scope route though...

Can anyone chime in on whether or not I should make the switch to a peep sight? Any good/bad experiences with peep sights? Or should I just give up a put a scope on my Omega like everyone else.

Thanks for the input!!!

Hello ahhartenstein,

This is a link to a peep and scope sight mount combination that I plan to try after this deer season on my Omega. It looks promising but I can't vouch for it, if you try it please post your impressions.

I use peep sights on most of my rifles. I prefer the fast handling of iron sights over a scope. For me a peep sight is every bit as good as a scope, and in many cases much faster. As I get older I can still use them, where regular iron sights are starting to blur.

I prefer Lyman over Williams, because of the ability to adjust them in and make repeatable long range shots. Heck these are what they used before there were scopes. :D

CZguy,

What distances are you shooting with your Lyman peeps? Feel comfortable with them beyond 100+ yds?

I like the quickness of peeps too which is why I am thinking about putting one on my smoke pole.

Thanks!

I have made several shots for deer at two hundred yards, and feel very comfortable using peep sights for this. I can't comment about any farther ranges because thats about as long a shot as you can take around here.

I think this is a very personal decision. I know most people I see at my public range seem to feel the need for a scope at anything over 25 yards. I have always used the standard of using a paper plate for my target. (for deer sized game) My max range is whatever range I can put ALL of the shots in the plate. I use this standard for archery, B/P, and modern firearms.
