Single Six Optics

I really like my Single Six but as I'm getting older I need help for my aging eyes. I have a Burris Fastfire 3 that I use on my Ruger 22/45. I assume I would have to get the barrel tapped for a rail. Not sure how much that might cost.

Would appreciate any suggestions.

Fuzzy sights

I, too use readers that, for me, makes both rear and front sight clear and the target a little fuzzy. Works great for my old eyes.

blackvoid will become famous soon enough
I have a Single-Ten for which I made a "copy" of the Weigand mount. Installs easily, just as the Weigand does. Put on a Fast-Fire 3 (3 MOA) and won't go back.

Thanks for the recommendations. Going to try Williams fiber optics sights and possibly Weigand.

I used the Weigand mount and a Burris reflex sight. Works fine!
