SKS with Peep sight

    Im thinking about picking up an SKS to use as a truck gun. I was wondering how the accuracy was affected by adding a peep sight.

    the SKS tech sight is the best investment i have ever made in an accessory for a firearm.

    It vastly improves the practical accuracy that is achievable with the rifle, as well as decreasing the time it takes to get on target.

    Tech Sights have been described by many shooters to be the best money you can spend on such a rifle.

    Love mine!
    I won't debate the merits of a "truck gun", but adding a peep and about a foot of sighting radius can't hurt, you'll get the feel of it in the first couple range trips.
    There's a reason that militaries issue peeps, they're easy to learn and quite useful for practical shooting at reasonable distances ... I've gone almost all peep and dumped scopes on everything I have, MrsBFD clings to her scope on a mini-14 that's never been past 100 yards, and that's the only one left.

    +1 on that one! I shoot clay birds at 120 yards with my SKS now that I have the Tech-Sight on them!

    Oh yes. I have never benched it to and gotten thr ruler out to see the literal difference it made, because it's really not that kind of gun. But I can certainly tell you, it makes it a LOT easier to ding those gongs. I got the tech sight, and I added a thinner front sight post. MUCH better.

    Which tech sights do you guys have. The ts100 or ts200 and which do you like best?
  8. Andrew Wyatt

    Andrew Wyatt Well-Known Member

    the TS100 is what i use.
  9. wnycollector

    TS100 here also. If you buy the TS100, you can always upgrade it to a TS200 for less than $20.

    Next question, I have a russian sks and the disassembly pin on the rear of the receiver cannot be completely taken out. Am I wrong and there is a way to remove it or do I need to have a gunsmith take it out. This is where the mounting pin for the tech sight needs to be.

    I had the same issue with my Norinco SKS-D. I took out my dremmel with a cutting disk and sheared off the 'tit'. Big committment, but once I put that tech site (TS100) on, and took it to the range, I knew I made the right choice. You won't regret it. A gunsmith can do it, but I'm not a handy guy, and I was able to take the pin out. If you don't have a dremmel, I think a file would work fine.

    Like the other guys, I can't recommend the tech site enough...it saved me from turning around and selling mine 3 days after I bought it.

    I have a Mojo on my SKS after trying a Williams rear peep first. The Williams peep was a loose sloppy fit on my SKS and wouldn't hold windage due to that.

    The Mojo is good because you don't have to remove it to take off the bolt carrier cover on the SKS. However, the Mojo peep is so far from the eye I am not really more accurate with it compared to the stock SKS sights. The Mojo is faster than the stock sights though.

    Some variants will have a smaller pin in that rear assembly pin, some will require grinding. Mine required surgery to remove.

    About 5 minutes with a good file did mine, if I had to go back to the original I'd just drill and pin where the nub was, it was a different, softer metal than the main pin as far as I could tell.

    One more question, do you need to remove the sks rear sight in order to use the tech sight?
  16. bigfatdave

    bigfatdave Well-Known Member

    I removed mine, I think it was in the way but don't remember specifically.
    But in theory all three sights (front, rear, tech way to the rear) would be in the same line, so the stock rear would get annoying unless you adjusted both the front and tech sight up.

    Mojo sights are absolutely not an improvement. they don't increase the sight radius, and they entirely eliminate any range adjustment.

    I took the original rear out of mine. It's held in by a leaf spring, and it took four hands to do it, but it was getting in the way.
  19. bigfatdave

    Mine wouldn't come out until I got really angry at it, I think it was lubricated by profanity and I somehow was able to curse in a Slavic language while filing out the nub on the assembly pin and while removing that sight.

    Worth it, though. Took the SKS from a rifle I couldn't gauge the abilities of to a rifle I can shoot well, I'm not fighting the sights any more so the rest comes naturally.
