Recently bought a Savage Mk II in .22 RF, comes with open sights, and the round receiver is drilled on top for scope mounts.

I'm not seeing any Williams or Lyman peep sight made to fit this rifle.  Anyone know of a good peep sight option?

Failing that, of course I will shoot it a while with the open sights and maybe be satisfied with that. 

Or might go ahead and put on a scope.  Probably a Leupold, have always had good luck with them.

Thoughts, ideas?

LYMAN makes Receiver sights for "round sided" Receivers. A GOOD GUNSMITH that can work on something besides AR's & 1911's, may be able to figure out how to adapt a current made sight to your rifle.

Thanks, but I was looking for a peep sight that will mount on the scope mounting holes already drilled and tapped on top of the receiver.  Williams makes some great little peep sights, the one they make for the 10-22 is great,

I do see some Williams sights that look like they will fit on centerfire rifles with a bigger receiver diameter.

Not wanting to do any custom work to this new rifle. 

If there is no peep sight that will bolt right on available, I guess I will just use it as is or get a Leupold scope.

Tech Sights makes a peep for the Savage .22.  They work great on my 10/22.

Yeah, I guess the Tech Sight is an option, I am not real crazy about it's "military" look.  Don't ask me why I don't like it, I like everything about the sights on a Garand.  Well I like them on a Garand.  Something like the Williams WGRS series is more like what I want, but I am not certain how to mount the one with a dovetail, and am pretty sure the one that fits a 110 is set up for a bigger receiver diameter. 

I guess I am just a hard to please old cuss.

How long has the Savage MK II been around?  I don't remember when it came out.  Maybe if it has not been out long, Williams will make one to fit it.

Mitch,

I discovered that Williams Peep sight for the 10/22 about 30yrs ago. Switched it out from a good old Weaver 2 1/2X scope. Now I Can't see well enough to take advantage of the Peep sight and have to switch back to a scope. 

I still have one on my H&R single shot .30-30 bbl.   Can still do OK with it. But the 10/22 is unusually accurate & needs the advantage a scope gives it. It's an old one a Deluxe from 1974. Always been EXCEPTIONALLY ACCURATE.
