If you are like me, you love your Ruger 10/22 rifles and carbines. However, I have always felt that the factory sights leave much to be desired. As I strive to bring my 10/22’s closer to perfection (and closer to the emptiness that is becoming of my wallet), the rudimentary iron sights are usually the first problem I attempt to solve.
For years now the good folks at Tech-Sights have been developing innovative aftermarket sight solutions for the Ruger 10/22, as well AK, SKS, Mini-14 and other great firearms. Tech-Sights employ the same time-proven aperture sight design found on the beloved M16/M4/AR15 lineup, including a windage-adjustable dual rear aperture, and an elevation-adjustable front post. The sights are made to easily mount to existing hardware fittings, so installation is a breeze.
I literally cut my group size in half by simply adding the Tech-Sights and installing an aftermarket hammer/mainspring to lighten the trigger pull… not to mention that target acquisition time is also cut down substantially. If you are in the market for an iron sight upgrade, I would highly recommend you take a look at the offerings from Tech-Sights.
