New Mod....Tech Sights

Well, since I want my Mini-14 to be an all-purpose centerfire carbine, I went ahead and ordered the Tech-sights for it.

I like the smaller aperature (.062 vs .090) and the ability to adjust it more easily. The sight is slightly taller than the stock unit, and it does get in the way of scope bell, but just barely. I can slide the scope back maybe an 1/8 inch and I'll get all the clearance I need.

You'll love them.

I have upgraded all of my Ranch Rifles and Mini-14's with TechSights.

Is there a simple replacement for the original Ranch rear peep but with a smaller hole? I don't touch the adjustments once it's sighted in so the knobs are of no benefit to me.

Assuming you have a 580-up, a good option is the XS Ghost Ring Aperture with a Merit #4 Hunting Disc threaded into it. I forget now which thread size/pitch you need, but this way you'd end up with an infinitely adjustable aperture size.

Of course, by the time you've spent that $60+shipping, you could have bought the Tech-Sight and ended up with a smaller aperture anyhow.

No way I'm spending $60 on a smaller hole to look through while I still have a phone pole for a front sight. I guess I'll accept the Tactical for what it was intended. It's a very handy rifle that offers fairly quick target acquisition, though not necessarily a precise set of irons.
