I too like peeps. I currently have peep sights on 2 win 94s, my Marlin guide gun and all 5 of my traditional style muzzleloaders. I find that I can shoot them very well and in the areas of PA where I hunt most shots are taken within 100 yds with most a lot closer. And I have found the peeps not to be a disadvantage over a scoped rifle. Plus they help to keep the sleek lines of a lever gun like the 94.

Seems like everyone is loving their peeps, all of my deer hunting is sub 100 yds I think I may have found a new sighting method. Will be trying this on either my knight muzzeloader or lever Winchester 3030 or perhaps both.

Never thought of it but seems Flags makes a dang good "point". No pun intended.

I am not a "crack shot" by any means, but for grins, after my post a couple of weeks back I went to the range to see just how well I really could do with my old peep-sighted Marlin 22 LR. It is an excellent shooting rifle. So I knew that any poor grouping would be the shooter !

With a good rest, at a measured 100 feet, I flat out surprised myself at the tight groups, and right on the money too. Shot 100 rounds and almost every one (91) was well inside of 2" of center of the bull's eye. Every one of the misses had excellent windage but were about 2 1/2" high (?).

So maybe I still have "it" .... but that could be debated !!

It is good to see so many enjoying their peep sights. Flags provided all the information about peeps and I will add that using them has no parralax issues.

My accuracy has improved and I enjoy the bigger sight picture and faster follow up shots.

Old eyes love scopes and peep sights. Sight adjustment is easier and much more accurate with a "click" adjustable peep then with stock open sights. I use several of them:
Lyman 66A on Win. '94
Stock military on Enfield Mk 4 #2 and a 1903A1.
Lyman 57 on sporterized 1917 Enfield 3006.
T/C "ladder" sight on Investarm Hawken.

I only use a scope on a 3006 for long range. Guns with peeps are much easier to carry and faster to use for folks that used open sights for years.

A few years ago this V peep had good reviews on this board with the muzzle loader people.

FWIW, a very very long time ago, hunted deer with a peep sighted 1891 Argentine mauser. Did well with it when hunting deer with shots up to 150 yds. These days, when shooting paper, prefer scoped rifles. However, my peep sighted 22 target rifle does quite well for me.....just as good as my 6-18x44 scoped 22 rifle when shooting 50 yd targets.
