    Default Winged Aperture Sight/ Ghost Rings

    I'm a big fan of aperture sights and I've seen a couple of samples that have a set of "wings" on each side of the rear aperture to protect the peep similar to Ruger's GSR or a 1917 Enfield.

    I have a Kimber Montana that would be a nice rifle with one of these on it. Does anyone know of a source to purchase one for installation? I'd prefer something one piece as opposed to something bolted to a scope base. This would be a dedicated iron sighted rifle.

    I assume you're aware of both Brockman and Skinner sights. Would one of theirs be adaptable to the Kimber?

    I was only aware of the Brockman pop up…but his Gen III looks exactly like the ticket. Thanks a bunch!

    I knew of Skinner but pretty much associate them only with levers...

    I'm taking more of an interest in shooting again with a peep these days…. call it "middle youth" <lol>

    Me too. Compared to a scope, It's a whole nother smoke. And, more fun. And, less bulk to pack around.

    I got one of my eyeballs worked on and I can see well enough for iron sights. A peep and a post is my favorite, because I'm able to see more of the target.

    Google Grizzly Custom Guns. They used to have a winged rear for bolt guns.

    Me too! I now have irons on a Ruger American, and am in the process of putting them on a Swede carbine.
