Re: Williams peep sight on rossi 92

That Williams receiver sight is a far better choice on your rifle than some red dot that requires batteries, turning on etc. in order to work. Take the aperture out and shoot through the threads. Far quicker and it is reliable. Plus you don't need any more holes, it's already on there.
