Can anyone get me the source for the No.1 slick peep that clamps in the rear scope dovetail? Does anyone carry them or must you get them from the factory?

Might try a call to Brownells, www.brownells.com

I see that they are selling parts from the major makers now. Might be worth a try.

Hi, Matt:
 Try here under Products/accessories, the site's a bit tricky to navigate.

Matt...

Slick, it is.  
Cheap, it is not.
Worth it?  Yup.

Go to www.newenglandcustomgun.com and go to the products list.  I ordered it online and received it in a few days.  They also offer different front sights, to allow for a wide variety of trajectories.  This sight also fits on the M77 series.  

Another benefit is that it can serve as a backup to a scope if needed,  as it will hold its zero during removal and replacement.  You will probably find, however, that you can shoot just as well with the peep as you can with a scope, at reasonable distances.

It is extremely well built and sturdy.  It comes with two apertures, and it is fully adjustable for windage and elevation.  I installed it with just a coin to turn the thumbscrew, as directed.  I have mine on a .45-70.  With Marshall's high-end thumper loads, my teeth may be getting loose but the peep sight isn't.  I am quite impessed with it.

And no, I don't work for them... I just appreciate excellence.

Enjoy,

Smith

Ditto everything Smith said, right down to the rifle that I have mine on.  Very well built and worth every penny.  For a picture click on the link below and then on "4570 site."

This is good to hear, a friend of mine and I are seriously considering them for our own Rugers. Now if I can only convince them to make a No. 1S in 6.5x55mm Swede....

Quite frankly, i was so impressed with the picture of that No.1 Ruger fitted with that aperture sight, I bought the sight 1st AND then the rifle to hang it on!!! Go figure!
