    The Tech-Sight link clearly shows a windage & elevation adjustable rear sight.

    It even says:
    The other one is not adjustable.

    Williams also makes a nice little adjustable receiver sight you might look at.

    Either should work fine for you.

    I went another route and ordered mine from NoDak Spud. Main reason is I liked the integrated rail on which I have mounted a scope, and their front sight post fit on my heavy barrel.

    Scroll about 1/2 way down to get to the sights.

    I have the Tech Sights, really like them a lot. They are fantastic for drilling targets rapid fire (not in the defined competition sense). If you take the gun to an Appleseed shoot, something on my list of things to do next year, that's one of the ones they recommend.

    Really? I couldn't live with that.

    Aiming for the center of 6", off by 3" @ 25...12MOA at 100?
    /I have smoothbore muskets more accurate.

    //+1 for Techsights.

    Ihave found on a 10-22 I tend not to need to change zero that often. I have tech sights and have been happy with them. If I were to do it over I would likely go with skinner sights. I think they just look nicer and can be adjusted.

    If you get the m1 sights you'll have to get the m1 carbine 10/22 stock. :)

    Tech sights for sure...Ive seen people at appleseeds, (including myself:D ) shoot 3/4" groups or less at 25 yards with no more than a walmart stock 10/22, tech sights, and a GI web sling

    I only have experience with the Tech Sights. They have blown me away! I'm saving up to put them on my SKS as well. Great product.

    Tech Sights are perhaps the best iron sight option available for the 10/22. The TS100 rear has a flip-type double aperture with a 4MOA difference between the two. Zeroed at 50yds with the large aperture, the small aperture is very close at 100yds. It is adjustable for windage just like an AR rear sight. The TS200 has a single aperture and is fully adjustable for windage and elevation. I find the elevation adjustment to be tedious and greatly prefer the TS100. The front sight is an AR-type post and elevation adjustable.

    +1 on the williams sights. I went for the fiber optic front option and couldn't be happier. They are a little fiddly to set up, but once there, they work well. and they're cheap.

    Fibre sights are not particularly good for superb accuracy...the reason is when they gather light, they scatter it as it leaves the end of the fibre optic strand...this leaves a glare that is difficult to focus on...and the first rule of iron sights is focus your eye on the front sight and your mind on the target

    sure they're quick, and will get you Minute o' Pie Plate, but theres a reason NM and High Power Shooters use a blackened square post

    A wise choice. Those M1 carbine sights adjust windage just like the original... with a hammer and punch. Not too handy, or too precise. The Tech sights have nice easy 1 MOA clicks for both windage and elevation. Adjust windage at the rear and elevation at the front. Remember FORS -- front opposite, rear same. Move the rear sight the direction you want the group to move, and move the front sight the opposite way. Definitely look into going to an Appleseed. There isn't a better way to spend a weekend, and it will definitely make you a better shot. Forget the pie plate... they will teach you everything you need to know to keep all your rounds on an inch square at 25m... or a man-sized target out to 500 yards with a center fire rifle... all from field positions. Oh and get a good sling. Get the Uncle Mike's wood screw sling studs with 1.25" swivels, and a GI web sling.

    Small point: Tech Sites on a 10/22 are not 1 MOA per click


    +1 to Appleseed.

    Tech Sights are what I put on MY 10/22 fake M1 carbine
    and the other 3 10/22s
    and the SKS
    and the Mrs's mini-14
    and the Papoose

    They're pretty good sights, and I like apertures.

    Tech Sights on a 10/22 completely transforms it from a plinker to an accurate training rifle. I liked them so much I put them on a Marlin 22, an SKS and a Mini 30.

    I have an XS Sights Systems ghost ring set up on my 10/22. It comes with a taller new front sight blade and a windage/elevation adjustable rear ghost ring sight assembly. I use the 0.151" ghost ring and have my 10/22 sighted in at 100 yards. (The ghost ring assembly can also be replaced with a threaded one that accepts Williams aperture target sights.)

    This particular 10/22 also sports an M1 carbine-like polymer stock from Choate Machine & Tool. It looks ugly as hell but it's been a great stock for me.

    Good luck!

    I got my father's old 10/22 and installed fiber optic sights on it, I think tru-glos. Other than that, I never touched them at all. I put tech sights on my SKS, with a thinner front sight post. that alone about doubled the accuracy. I think most of it was doubling the distance between the sights.

    After Appleseed you can still have fun with those plates... you just might have to move them farther out!

    My 10/22 carbine with 18" barrel has 1 MOA clicks with TSR-100 sights, or near enough as makes no matter. It is within an inch or two of the same sight radius as an M-16A1, which is what those sight parts are off of, and which also has 1 MOA per click for both windage and elevation.
