That's a thought. The big issue for me is my eyes are getting worse and I have a hard time seeing the front through that tiny notch in the rear. I just lost the elevator for the rear so when I order a new elevator I might just order a whole rear and experiment before spending $80.I don't have any experience with that sight but I am a big fan of peep sights. Here is another option to consider -on both of my Winchester Trappers I just put the sight in a vise and filed the "horns" off and ended up with a flat topped rear sight to match up with the flat topped front sight. It works well and costs nothing and my sight picture is now the same as my handguns and it is easier to fine tune elevation. But a peep is probably faster for most folks.
OK this changes everything. It retains the look of the original rifle and offers what looks like a useful upgrade. Plus I went to their webpage and they have ivory and gold bead fronts to match.
Thanks, I may give this a try. I will probable go with the gold bead front, right now I have a dab of red paint on the skinny front sight and it helps.Be aware that aperture rear sights only work well when the aperture is very close to the eye.
Aperture sights that are on the barrel don't work nearly as well and probably won't be much better then the standard notch sight you have.
Before buying make up a "try" sight from metal sheet as I described above.
This time, punch a hole in it and mount it to the barrel.
That way you can see for yourself how well it'll work for you before dropping any money.
