I need help i just don't like the peep rear sight on my 196 series ranch rifle, i much prefer a notch or traditional style open sight. I love irons on my 10/22 and they really look alot like the rear sight in my mini 14 its a simple folding or flip up sight with a dovetail to mount to rifle. the sights look identical except for the mini has a peep where the 10/22 has a notch if i ordered a new 10/22 rear from ruger could i swap it for the peep that i have now?

Is it the hole that's too small in the stock Mini peephole?

If that's the case, you can install Tech Sights with larger peepholes.

i dont want a peep at all
If you are handy with tools and have a dremel tool and some sand paper, you can remove your sight blade and cut off the top half then dress it down nice and smooth to where you have a half circle instead of a peep hole. then apply some blueing, then oil lightly and reinstall. You will now have an open sight to flip up or down. I did mine that way and it works perfectly, for me.
