I now have my final version of my new peep sight. To adjust for elevation turn it one full turn up, 1 turn = .031". The target was shot to test a new patch lube and hopefully for a good group. This was late in the day and it had clouded over and my eyes didn't want to focus. I held windage pretty good but had a hard time seeing where the top of the front sight was in relationship to the target.
I'll just have to shoot it again when I shoot at 50 & 100 yards.
I also made a new front sight. .080 brass base with a .125 thick blade mechanically locked to the base. The width has been filed to .100 thick. Final height off the barrel is around .300 or less. No photo at present.

Looks like it works VERY well. Like I said before cool engineering. CL

The rifle is a beauty and the accuracy you are wringing out of it enhances what is already there. Very nice to see such accuracy from such a good looking rifle.

I thank you for your words Cloverleaf and Dr. Mike. I just can't help myself when it comes to accuracy, regardless of whether it is a centerfire or muzzleloader, I just have a need to try and wring the full potential out of it.
It just adds to the satisfaction if I can build one that looks good too.

Very cool.

So how does it adjust for elevation?

I'm starting on a build soon, my first. My father already has mentioned he'd like me to build him a rifle and at 73, he'd appreciate sights like this.

td, look at the other post "Prototype peep sight", there is a photo there of the first prototype made with a .40 S&W empty case.
But here's how it works, I drilled and tapped an 8/32 hole through the tang. The peep also has a 8/32 hole through it also. A section of a 8/32 bolt is glued and threaded into the peep with J&B weld. The stock mortice has been relieved for the nut and lock washer and the length of the bolt.
To adjust for elevation loosen the nut and turn the peep counter clockwise, one complete turn equals .031" actual movement. Then tighten the nut snugly and shoot. The biggest problem is the barrel must come out of the stock to get at the nut.
I made the front sight intentionally high so I could file it down when sighting it in. I also turned the rear sight up a turn or two to get some room to play with later if needed. Now that the rifle is sighted in I don't intend to move the rear sight again so it's really not a problem to remove the barrel once or twice when sighting in.
