Check out these sights!

Installed them today (XS Ghost ring sights for 10/22) :






XS Ghost-Ring Hunting Sight Set Ruger 10/22 Steel Matte

Those are new grips on my MKIII too I really like them. The stock ruger front sight was a PITA to remove... but once it was out it was easy to install the XS front sight. I just laid the barrel tip over a roll of electricians tape and knocked it out with a brass punch and hammer. I haven't taken the rifle to the range yet but my impression is that I like the sights and can't wait to see how they shoot at 50 and 100 yarks. The rear apperature is bigger than I expected... It came with two and I install the smaller one.

these do look pretty cool, i'm wondering what the sight picture through the little rear aperture is, cant find a decent picture of it. are these supposed to match with a blued barrel, or stainless or what? can't really tell from the pic, but my guess would be blued because of the white front sight line.

very interesting find, i'll have to keep these on my list...

I have an XS ghost ring rear sight on my Mini-30 and really like it. Bowling pins while standing offhand at 50 yards are easy as pie.

I wonder how hard they are to install on a 10/22?

These don't look much different from the old peep sights. I used to have a set on a rifle 40 years ago. Just look through the ring, put the front sight on the target and fire. Very accurate. The smaller the hole the more accurate you can be. Sometimes hard to acquire target though.

Hotta think install has gotta be pretty easy. Drift out old front, drift in new one. Rear looks to simply use scope mount base holes. Makes for a 10 minute install.

Thats what I thought also but is they were off even 1/8" it would not make it practical. I might have missed it but I didn't see the stats.

I really like my Hi-Viz sights when not using greendot. The rear sight was 1,2,3, but the front sight was unbelivabley difficult to get out and i had to reshape the front Hi-viz to get it back in. Now that the dirty work is done their excellent and maybe cheaper than what you are looking at? The 10/22 pack came with multiple colors and sizes for the front fiber optic sight. Check them out. Very accurate!

Okay well I just ordered these sights from MidwayUSA. They are going to be installed on a 10/22 "TakeDown" ... Is anyone interested in a follow-up range report/installation guide? If I get some positive responses I'll probably get back to the forum with that information. I want to keep my takedown lightweight as possible and I found the stock sights really lacking. Red Dots aren't my thing... So this is what I'm going with.

Benji,

Report even if its a negative report. You can even report the installation before taking it to the range. thanks

I've got Tech-Sights on my 10/22 because they function just like the M16 sights I'm familiar with from my time in the Army. I've actually got a peep setup of some sort on every one of my non-scoped rifles. Looks like the XS system would work just fine as well.

Will the Tech-Sights bolt right up to the 10/22?
