    Default Default Rear Peep: Tech-Sights or TX Weapons Sys

    Finally got paperwork back to SBR a Draco. One open topic for me is getting a peep sight on it.

    Dog Leg Scope Rail PRODUCT FEATURES
    The TX Weapons Sys looks cool but is it REALLY stable? Especially if I want to put glass on it later? Down side is the rear peep they sell doesn't seem to have any elevation or windage adjustment

    Tech-SIGHTS Precision Shooting Accessories
    The tech-sights advantage, as I see it, is the elevation and windage adjustment BUT I hear it is a real hassle to get the dustcover off for routine cleaning. I can't find it any more but I one saw a pic of a kind of quick release someone came up with by installing removable pins attached to each other with a little cable wrapped around the rear. Anybody seen this or can post a pic or thread link? I have a machinist buddy than could copy this.

    Pros? Cons? In either camp?

    I don't have either, but there were others asking about these before.

    As for the elevation and windage of the TX setup, that would be done with the front sight.

    And here's some videos I found on them
    This is a good one for the TX setup, and the best one I've seen



    This is the only one I could find that seemed decent for the Tech Sight brand, but it's still not a great one.

    As for the pins with the cable thing, here you go



    So my opinion, I'd get the TX one, seems better made.
    OH and if you decide to get either of these, go through a third party company, a few people complained about slow shipping when ordered direct. And don't forget to give us a review

    Yup. That's all the info I stumbled on last year. Thanks for compiling. I will probably go Texas Wep Sys with a metal windage adjustable KelTec peep sight.

    I have both. Both are good products, but if I had it to do over again, I would buy a second TWS rail for the rifle that has the tech sights, due to the dust cover hassles. Skip the railed covers in the previous post; they will not hold zero.

    If you buy a TWS, order it from Brownells, and not direct from TWS if you can. TWS tends to be a little flaky with regards to customer service. I've never heard of them ripping anybody off, you just might have to wait for a while for your stuff, or to get a response to an inquiry.

    I just ordered the TWS dogleg rail-cover and Krebs BHO safety from Brownells and a KelTec SU16B-365 metal rear peep sight from KelTec

    Thanks for all the feedback and advice guys. Dogleg backordered but I'll be sure to post the build after she's done.
