Excellent front sight. Hard to install. Rear sight not worth the trouble

Went with this Hi Viz sight after reading tons of reviews and install stories. Bottom line, it's worth it if just for the front sight. Front sight is bright. Way better than the Ruger brass bead. fiber optic dot does end up being about 1.4mm higher than brass bead. But your rear sight is adjustable for that. The rear sight is junk as far as I'm concerned. Doesn't pick up light well at all. The two dots are way too close together. Read too many reviews of rear sight being loose in dovetail so I never tried installing it. Install tips: factory sight gets drifted out Left to Right (holding rifle as if you we're shouldering it ). You'll need little needle files and a digital caliper capable of reading thousandths of an inch for filing down new sight. Use width of factory sight as a guideline. For example, my factory sight base had a width of 0.369" at the widest point of the dovetail. My Hi Viz sight had a width of 0.379 out of the box. Obviously that wont fit. I just filed the slanted portion of the HiViz dovetail, both sides but not the bottom, until I slowly brought it down to 0.368". Keep trying fit as you go. Little bit at a time. You can't put metal back on, so don't take off too much. Good luck.
Pros: Front sight has excellent visibility. Choice of two color dots
Cons: Son of a gun to remove front sight & install. New front sight REQUIRES filing to fit....

High viz sights for 10/22

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 13, 2009
sights are of good quality but the install on the front sight was a bit brutal. It was very tight and I really had to beat on it to get it in which messed up the finish. The rear sight went in easy, but almost too easy. I can push it out by hand. the visibility is good and being able to switch the color of the front sight is convenient. The only reason I would not recommend them is because the pain of installing them, just a tad too tight and too loose
Pros: better than stock, replaceable front sight color
Cons: Install...
Would recommend: No

I like it!

I like it. I was looking for an optical daylight set-up like came on my Gamo 'Whisper' Air Rifle. This one is nice and bright. I use the greenish front sight set-up (no choice on that) and the pinkish front tube. The sights come with both greenish and pinkish front tubes (6 total). Very good sighting ability. It does block some of the target . . . but, if the front sight was smaller . . . it would be less visable - like the original front sight on my 10-22. Ease of installation was pretty good. Use a brass drift (punch) or a hard wood dowel to drive the existing sights out and install the new ones. A steel drift or puch could mark the finish of the sights and/or rifle. I did remove the front light pipe to install the front sight to avoid possible breakage. The sight proper (both pieces) are, I believe, steel and are 'sound'. No cheap plastic 'crap'.

First set-up - I could punch the target pretty good at 75 yards.

I am pleased with my choice.


Pros: Great visability and reasonably easy to install.
Cons: None noted....
Would recommend: Yes
