Things I liked: This sight is well made for the price.
What others should know: I have fat fingers and it is difficult to manipulate the little screw that locks the dovetail backup wedge in place. I have tried it on 3 rifles and haven't been able to match it up to the front sight that comes with the gun. it sits too high and wont lower enough to bring the shots on target.
Things I liked: This is the second style of willaims peep I have purchased. This unit is sturdy and has stayed zeroed after encountering the typical handling and slight bumping a rifle would normally encounter. All the connections tighten down well and are rock solid.
Things I would have changed: Not much, it would be nice if Williams would make an insert pack with popular different sizes so you could change the hole size for different shooting scenarios. It seems they all screw in the same threads so you could make a universal kit to sell separately.
What others should know: I always say that the fasteners are marginal on these willaims sights. The screw quality is good but the slots are very shallow. Be very careful when selecting a screw driver to tighten the screws. Also you will need to disassemble the sight to mount it. It is very easy, once you realize that is what is needed. Switch back and forth snugging the Allen headed screws down and don't drop that little wrench! This setup is pretty good on my hw30s. I use the post and bead front insert and it seems to be a winning combination. The hole is larger than I would have liked so I moved the sight down the dovetail further from my eye to make the hole appear smaller. It has worked well for the target shooting and light pesting (sparrows) I use the rifle for.
Things I liked: This is a great fit for Nitro Piston, Ruger Blackhawk and Airhawk, Winchester Springers, and the economy Hatsan in .25. Much better than bad plastic rear sights that this class of springers come with in box. I have read so many comments about mag springers being "scope destroyers" this is a logical alternative for close and mid range.
Things I would have changed: One word: CRUDE. I have Beeman peep sights from '90s. They actually are click adjustments with knobs to turn. This is the closest I could find on PA site. But the Williams site works great on my $100 Fury NP. Still, an upgrade to click movements - even with price hike - would be worth extra $. Beeman produced one with small screws that a mini screwdriver could operate. Williams could do that. The windage is a piece you slide side to side and then screw down. It can work, but look to small notch in front of sight hole, in good light, to line up with lines. The elevation is functional; just make sure to tighten lateral screw on left side to lock down elevation arm, when ready, after adjustments.
What others should know: For gas spring users, in addition to heavy ammo like JSB Monsters or Beasts, make sure to Loctite lateral screws on peep site and scope stop. Even with 25 grain Monsters that REALLY slowed down my NP, and made my Fury useful, easier to shoot, and accurate, the jolt still backed out screws. Loctite Blue.
Would this work for a Benjamin Marauder? Could it see over the magazine? Any other recommendations?
