Hiviz sight for 77/44

Need recommendation for front sight for my Ruger 77/44.
I think the hiviz will make a big difference.
I might also change the back sight to a peep hole.
I just got this rifle and took it to the range today. Very nice and it didn't have too much kick to it.
Really had fun with it today!

Front sight:
Marble Arms - The Leader in Iron Gun Sights

Once you figure out which one you specifically want, or lder it from Brownell's or whomever.


Best rear aperture/peep sight ever:
Barrel Mount

Buy directly from manufacturer.

I have one of each (replacement Marbles gold bead front sight and the stainless steel Skinner rear aperture sight) on my 77/357 and am utterly pleased with both them and the rifle!

The dovetail skinner works fine with factory front. There is enough discussion on the subject in other forums and directly with Andy that he knows the Dovetail mount is a dream.

If you use this setup use the factory height hi-viz

I am one picky SOB and this Skinner on the 77/44 is like good whiskey and a cigar.

Any pictures of replacement sights? I have to say, personally, I hate the gold bead/white diamond rifle sights Ruger seems to use. I have a hard time using them, and the gold blends in with everything outdoors.

What were you shooting through it, or what are you comparing it to? I was surprised by how rowdy the rifle is, considering it's a pistol-caliber. It's not objectionable, but I expected it to be pretty mild.
