My son bought a marlin 336 last fall and we just put A Williams peep sight on it. It sure makes it easier to see than the buckhorns that came on it.

Especially for target shooting with circular targets, a peep sight combined with a globe front sight with circular insert can be one of the most accurate set ups available.

I started out shooting smallbore matches with a scope, but after an optics malfunction that caused me to borrow a fellow shooter's rifle at a match - that had a peep and globe - I never went back to the scope for that purpose.

That probably sounds odd for me to admit to some of you fellas that are on here a lot, since I'm typically a high magnification scope guy. BUT, for open sights, a peep and globe is my preference.

However, I don't really qualify that peep sights and ghost ring sights are the same thing. Very different function in relation to the eye, and very different purposes.

I believe that a non-scoped rifle is harder to shoot accurately.

However, under low light conditions nothing beats having optics !
