Going to a gun show this weekend so I'll be on the look out for a receiver sight for my 30-30 Leveraction.  Its a Ted Williams M100 (same as a Win 94).  Any suggestions?

Ravenwolf,
     I have a Williams 5-D on one rifle and a Lyman 66 on another and I highly prefer the Lyman. Easier adjustment and the ability to reference your zero setting and come back to it are the main reasons. Williams makes a Fool Proof sight which is similar to the Lyman 66, but I've never used it.
     One point; make sure your rifle is drilled and tapped for a receiver sight, as not all of them are. If not, it's a simple operation for a gunsmith.
       Hope you find one, they are really great!  ID

Ravenwolf,
Be aware that the newer lymans are like the williams in that they are currently made of an aluminum alloy. Sometimes i come across the older steel versions of the lyman, which i find more,o how can i say, quality! (the steel versions are a bit pricey, at least in my area) Apeture sights and lever guns go hand in hand, like frogs in a pond!

Thanks for the replies everyone.  Well I ended up getting an all steel Redfield model.  I had all three types side by side.  All three were comparable so price was the factor.  I'll try it out and see....Thanks again.  Now to find a tang sight for my Savage 99F 308 with tip off scope mounts.  The Lyman hunting peep/tang sight I have won't work in conjuntion with the tip offs as the peep adjustments are on the same side as the tip off.
