    ok. so i have a .243 remington model 700 youth (been in the family for ages)and i want to know how hard it would be to mount a military peep sight on it and if that would still be good for hunting 100 yards and closer?

    If there's a Gander Mountain near your house go there, they have good gunsmiths. Does your gun have fixed sights or does it need to have holes drilled? If it has fixed sites, they definitely have some sort of aftermarket part. And 100 yards or closer is easy for a peep sight. In marine training their expected to hit a human at 300 yards with open sights, it'll be fine.

      Mounting a peep sight is not that difficult for a good gunsmith. However, finding a good gunsmith willing to do it for less than the cost of a decent 783 or 770 might be a challenge.
