I have the TSR100 sights on my carbine. Great value. My shooting has improved dramatically from the original open sights. I think most people would agree that peep sights are better than open sights.
The installation of the front post can be a bit tricky if you don't have a proper workspace, but the sights are worth it regardless. Just clamp the barrel as close to the muzzle as you can when drifting (pounding) out the original front sight.

I haven't encountered those Williams sights, so I don't know anything about them.

Peep sights tend to help better with focusing your sight on the target. Ultimately you go with what you think will work best for you and try it out. It's what you're most comfortable with.

I have the TSR-200 on my carbine and it's an excellent sight. It's not a match grade target sight but a whole lot better than the stock front bead/rear notch sight on the 10/22. If you go with the TSR-200 make sure you get the TS-211 Sight Adjusting Tool. It will allow you to easily adjust the front and rear sight for elevation and rear sight windage. When I bought my 10/22 back in 1980 it was $10.00 cheaper than the price of the Tech-Sight TSR-200 sight set! My goodness,time has sure flown by!

Williams does make some nice stuff (I like the one on my mini 30) but for the 10/22 I would definitely go with the tech sight. I have one on an SKS and on a marlin 22, they both work wonderfully on those rifles.

+1 for the tech sights! Another thing with the tech sights is the longer sight radius and increased accuracy that accompanies.

In looking at these online, I'm trying to understand the differences between the TSR100 and TSR200. Why would someone want the 100 over the 200 or visa-versa? I currently have a scope on my 10/22 carbine, but think I want to take it off and use this instead, but am not sure which one to order.

It depends. If you want a lot of adjustability then go with the 200 as you can adjust for Windage and elevation with the rear sight and elevation with the front. With the 100 all your elevation is adjusted at your front sight and Windage is done with the rear sight.

If you want changeable apertures then go with the 200.

Basically go with the 200 unless you are painstakingly broke.

But then if you are painstakingly broke there are better things to spend your money on.

I love my tech sights. I also would like a scoped .22 just for fun though.

Wow now that is some kool bling there.., the TSR200 looks like my choice. Myself I have a cheap reflex on mine that costs less and is dead nuts every time. But that TSR200 looks like it would take a ton of abuse. Its a personal choice, after seeing that TSR200 I might have to move my reflex over to my Buckmark and get the TSR200 for my 10/22. That site reminds me of boot camp, LOL.

The 100 would more closely reflect the modern service rifle sights. But the 200 is the way to go.

The sights are built well (i think they even have a steel front sight body now) and they are tough but you will have to use some thread locker on both to keep them tight.

I bought the fiber optics for Ruger Rimfire and found out the sight picture is way too busy. I took way too long trying to line up all those red spots. I replaced the rear with the factory and it works very well.

+1 on the TSR-200 (or 100 but might as well spend the xtra). Especially if you end up shooting an Appleseeds event! You'll already be set to go.

fire-sights

I just bought a 10/22 all-weather that has a fire-sight as the front sight. I really like it (I always thought it was a gimmick, a sight of no real consequence--I was wrong). My aging eyes like the fire-sight, I'm shooting minute-of-soda can at 100 yards off-hand. The first time I shot the 10/22 it was a gloomy cloud-covered rainy day and that front sight just glowed brightly. I think a fire-sight as a front sight is a cheap alternative and a great design (just my lousy cranky east-coast attitude).

I have both the TSR100 and TSR200 on my loaner LTRs. To be honest, after I set the sights up for the rifles, I've never used the rear sight elevation adjustments.

What I like about the TSR100 is the flip rear sight.

The Williams peep sight is also a good sight system. I have a rifle in now for a trigger job that has this set up. It does not adjust as easy as the TSR system. It uses set screws and dovetail slides rather the click adjustments found on the TSR.
