Low Front Sight

Response to Try MidwayUSA

Spent a couple of hours this afternoon with my 760.
I was shooting 1-inch pecans at 18-feet, 21-feet, 25-feet and 10-yards.
Using 3-strokes of compression with Daisy zinc-coated BBs.

I found the rear sight had to be down on the lowest setting.
As such, I don't think the Williams WGRS-54 is gonna work on my 760 without
a taller front-sight.

From a steady-position, off-hand supported on a window sill and my right-shoulder
braced against a window frame.
At 21-feet ... shooting pecans wasn't a challenge.
At 25-feet ... with a little more effort ... I was connecting with monotonous regularity.
Moving to 10-yards ... I had to exercise due diligence to stay on-the-mark.
However, at 10-meters ... I was really having to focus to connect with the 1-inch pecans.
But, I could hit two-out-of-three shots.

With my Daisy 953 using AR-15 peep-sights, shooting 1-inch pecans at 10-meters is not difficult.
But, does require concerted effort.
I'm capable of making good hits at 15-yards with another one of my 953's with aperture sights.

My point, my 760 needs a better iron-sights to take advantage of its full accuracy potential.
As such, I'm still looking-for a suitable grooved-receiver mounted peep-sight.
