Bottom Gun, you can get one of these Williams ramps that take any dovetail blade if you want to use a fiber optic sight. You'll have to use a really short F/O blade.
The ramp shown is tall, which is...

SA 22's are sweet, but pretty tiny. If you are a bigger guy the 552 is a full size rifle.
And if you plan to scope, it's much easier to do with the 552.

The 552 will fire shorts longs, long...

Looks like the extra height of that PC sight will help, but my question would be, can you get the rear sight up high enough to match ?

Glad you got it figured out, Rex.
Did you say you had replaced the rubber buffer ? I can imagine that those get hard after a few decades, and even worse in cold weather.

The WGRS receiver sight is pretty affordable, around $40. It is made of aluminum.
I think the Skinner looks better, is all steel, and is a lot lower, so you don't need such a high front sight. But...

I tried some Remington CBee loads, a 40 grain plated HP @ 710 fps.

New Appreciation for the 1906

The gunsmith that did the work had done a good job. I've had it out a few times and it grouped well with the couple different kinds of ammo I tried.
