Things I liked: The peep sight looks great on my old Benjamin 397PA. It is much older than the 5-years recommended in the description by manufacturer. (approximately 1990 era made in Racine, Wisconsin before Crosman bought them out) It gets my groups at 10 yards as close as the optical sight I put on the gun a few years ago. With the peep sight I don't have to place my chin on the stock to get my eye in line with the scope, so I can now use the rifle with my cheek on the stock which is more comfortable and reliable for sighting in. The aperture that comes with it is .093 inches in diameter, but you can get interchangeable ones at .05 inches which will squeeze the groups even more. The packaging calls this the Williams 5D series not the Williams 64 peep sight. It is the same and does fit my Benji very well. No problems with P.O.I. being too high as others have stated, and no mod. to the sight needed. The screws that fit the holes in the side of the gun were a fraction too long, see below for fix.
Things I would have changed: 1. As stated above, the screws were two or three turns too long. That caused the screws to bind against the bolt and not allowing it to move. This was easily fixed by wrapping some small amount of washer packing below the head of the screw and screwing it back in. The screw heads did not extend beyond the body of the sight and did not interfere with the elevation mechanism, as the second screw is under it, nor bind the bolt any more; thus problem solved. This could be easily corrected by the manufacturer supplying a slightly shorter screw. 2. Possibly Pyramid Air could carry the smaller aperture as an accessory.
What others should know: The peep sight is more accurate than the manufacturer's fixed open sight. It is easier to get target acquisition than the original sight, and may aid older eyes like mine. The original rear sight on the gun must be removed, which is not a problem. Just tap the front edge of the rear sight with a hammer and block of wood knocking it rearward and it will release from the side rails and fall off. Save the side rails and rear sight for later replacement (which you probably will never want to do after using the peep sight. Zeroing in the sight does require you to loosen screws for horizontal (which I did not have to do as it was perfectly centered on the barrel when installed) and loosening one screw for elevation and turning another to raise eye piece. Once zeroed, you are good to go without changing a thing until you change distances. Others have wanted a quicker means of zeroing in, possibly if they are using gun for hunting and having to change distance often, but most of us will not.
Things I liked: Excellent sight for the money...zero install problems and took only a moment to sight in at 25 yards
Things I would have changed: Maybe some instructions , but easily figured out..
What others should know: I mounted this on 1994 397P with no problems
Things I liked: It is a nice sight. Good picture, easy to install and accurate. Groupings shrink. It even starts off looking nice.
Things I would have changed: For the money I spent on it, I shouldn't have to disassemble, get out a file and paint- there is a ridge that prevents the sight from adjusting all the way down. File, file, file... reassemble, disassemble... Well, you get the picture. Quality control!!!
What others should know: The windage and elevation adjustments are crude, but effective. There are not many other open sight sight options for the 392/397s, and once you have the sight on and in it really is very effective with a significant shrinking of groups. This review may be a little on the negative side, but I would definitely buy this again, but for almost $40 I think they can step it up a little.

Are there any problems with the front sight being too low for this sight>
That all depends on what you are mounting it on
