Default Rear sight ideas? For a TC Hawken/Renegade.

Hi,
I'm not too thrilled with the rear sight on my Renegade.

If I could find a scope mount, I'd probably scope it.

But failing that, does anyone have any creative ideas for a nice rear sight that uses the two screw holes. Don't really want to cut a dovetail into it.

I've even fooled around with an XS Site systems rear peep mounted forward up there where the factory rear was installed. Results were so so.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

I had my traditional gun drilled and tapped for a WGRS peep, worked great with a Firesight up front, with no aperture, worked like a ghost ring, Williams makes a ghost ring for the WGRS also, and the Twilight aperture works great too. A call to Williams will get you the right combination of sights to work on the TC, they also make a receiver sight for it.

The Lyman 57SML is another option, it mounts on the tang, one addition hole needs to be drilled and tapped.

The TC tang mounted hunter peep sight works great for me.

Just FYI; the 57sml won't fit on a Renegade without removing some wood from the side of the stock, tried, it will fit the Hawkin but the Ren is wider ???

Stuart; What is it you don't like about the factory sight? Cause it is a "Target" style sight,, and what are ya kinda looking for??

I removed metal from the sight itself on mine.

Williams aslo makes a FP Hawken reciever sight that will work on the Renegade.

My friend had the same sight on his Hawken and he was very happy with it.

With my eyes, it becomes a task of settling a fuzzy front site into a fuzzier notch of a rear site. It also seems to block out everything underneath. :-\

I like the idea of a peep. The barrel alread has ONE hole right at the breach end.

If a person reads the Lyman instructions I posted, it states exactly that for rifles other than Lyman and the TC Hawken.

Have you checked Track of the Wolf (http://www.trackofthewolf.com/index.aspx?as=1)? They have "heap plenty" sights of various configurations. You should be able to find something there.
