Default Magnifying peep sights?

Do magnifying peep sights exist? I have a 10 pin sight that is shaped like an oval, so I cannot put a magnifying device om it. A magnifying peep would be the solution. I do not want to get a single pin scope because I do not think that it is as practical for hunting as fixed pins. Please let me know if magnified peeps exist and where to get them if they do.

Default RE: Magnifying peep sights?

The problem is that I am nearsighted and would like to be able to see farther away by magnifying my field of view with a peepsight, not a scope. After reviewing the link provided by Mike Hill, I can see that a verifier will not work because I am nearsighted and that a clarifyer is designed to work with a scope, not a fixed pin hunting sight. Any ideas?

Your out of luck unless you change sights where you can add a lens and use a clearifiying peep.

There are only clearifiers and verifiers.
