Williams makes a FireSight that is .570”, that might be the tallest they make.
Skinner sells them too, down towards the bottom of their front sight page.

That's a good looking Micro Midas, jstanfield.
I'll probably get to the point eventually where I have to go with the dot, but for now I can still do well with the peep.

I don't know how I got 11 round mag capacity stuck in my head.
I just tried 14 rounds in the stock, and the rod closed all the way on 15 rounds also.

Roddy, I used a .500" Marbles small brass bead, and it is barely high enough.
I like my peep to end up low down on the receiver, as it's sighted at normal closer shooting ranges.
You can always...

Almost Perfect

After 40+ years of being without a Nylon 66, I picked up another this summer. I wish I would have bought another way sooner.
It wouldn't function when I got it, but it really wasn't that dirty.

I have half a dozen .22s, including a Win 9422 and Marlin Mountie, but my BL-22 is my favorite. Mine has a Skinner peep on it.

I haven't heard anything about a problem with the receivers on the earlier 552s.

That's a great price. An older one like mine. My 1957 model also showed some promise accuracy wise, so I knew I'd have to scope it. It likes RWS subsonic HPs.
