    Default Skinner Sights

    Has anyone used the peep sights made by skinnersights.com? These seem to be like the xs sights, but for half the price.

    Default On my Guide Gun

    I put the brass sights on my stainless guide gun. Worked great, look great. The brass is a bit soft, so I dinged it up a bit due to my heavy-handedness, but was able to sand the dings out no problem. Machining was very tight tolerances. Adjustments easy to make, no problems getting it sighted in. I did buy the front sight with the rear - don't know if the stock front would have worked equally well.

    I also have no doubt Tim would have replaced the sight I dinged up at no cost. But I wouldn't have asked as it was my own fault.

    I DEFINITELY recommend these. I can't compare to the XS, as I haven't used them. The Skinner sights are high enough to see over the XS scout scope mount I have installed, too.

    I had one on my .45-70 when i had it and just bought another for my other lever gun. I really like them compared to a stock rear sight.

    Does the lack of wings on the rear sight make a difference? Ever had a problem getting bumped and losing zero?

    On the one I just put on my .30-30 the windage is harder to adjust than the last one,. It is tight, so it would need to be a very hard bump.
